The Pauda Program at St. Bonaventure University helps Franciscan institutions and ministries transmit the values of Saints Francis and Clare to new generations of leaders. Infusing this mission into the daily operations of Franciscan schools, hospitals, retreat centers, and social service programs requires competent leaders. Individuals completing the program will increase expertise in preservation and promotion of the Franciscan Legacy.
The Padua Program is an educational initiative of the Franciscan Institute at St. Bonaventure University. Padua is a ten-month program kicking off with a three day on-campus workshop (July 12-15, 2023) and then monthly videoconferences (September through May) on Franciscan spirituality, leadership, and organizational topics.
