  • Our Franciscan Identity

    San Francesco d'Assisi

    St. Francis is like the root of an ever growing plant that incessantly produces fruits of sanctity. From the beginning till today, his vivifying spirit continues to move men and women of every social status, nationality and culture to follow in his footsteps.  In the course of the centuries, the various reforms within the large Franciscan family, comparable to branches of a single tree, have continually proposed a return to the roots according to the sensibility and the necessities of their time.

  • Traccia Mariana

    FondatoriAt the onset of the third millennium, the Franciscans of the Immaculate come to light as a response to the decree “Perfectae Caritatis,” which invited religious to “return to the sources.” Besides the “Regula Bullata” of the First Order of the Friars Minor, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate profess its Marian expression:  the “Traccia Mariana” (Marian form of Franciscan life).

  • The Portiuncula

    La Porziuncola in Assisi

    It is within the “Porziuncula” of St. Mary of the Angels where the Seraphic Order draws its roots, claiming as its own the “Cause of the Immaculate.” St. Maximilian M. Kolbe, with his Cities of the Immaculate, constitutes in our times, one of the genuine fruits of that entirely Marian and Seraphic roots.

  • Spiritual Heritage

    San Massimiliano KolbeThe figure and apostolate of St. Maximilian M. Kolbe is a spiritual hereditary which the Franciscans of the Immaculate (Friars, Sisters and laity) have fully inherited. With their Marian Vow of unlimited consecration to the Immaculate, they commit themselves to bring Christ to the world: through contemplation and action, word and example, in imitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the first missionary of the Gospel.

Un giorno con Maria 

Television Broadcast and WEB TV



The “TELE BUON CONSIGLIO” was born on March 25, 1988, on the solemnity of the Annunciation of the Marian year declared by Blessed John Paul II.

From that moment on, it could be represented as a faithful companion, especially for the sick and the suffering comforted by prayers as well as by the enlightenment of Christian and cultural formation.

Its local office is located in Frigento (AV). From the shrine dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, it gradually expanded its transmitting capacity from the Irpinia to the rest of the regions of Puglia and Basilicata. The onset of the digital world on channel 81 permitted from 2012 its entrance in important urban areas like Capital Rome and Naples.  In order to surpass the regional borders it requires the conformity of programs and an increase of production, so as to reach the standard quality and national interest.
