The Franciscan Place Chapel and Religious Gift Shoppe at Destiny USA



"May the Lord be always with you, and wherever you are, may you always be with the lord."


Assumption's Franciscan Place is located on the Commons Level of Destiny USA, committed to preserving a peaceful, prayerful presence in Central New York's largest marketplace. In 1999, the Franciscan Sisters and Friars made a decision to bring the gospel message of God’s love to the spiritually poor in the marketplace as St. Francis did. Since then, the staff and volunteers have been committed to the mission: to bring worship, evangelization, education, and pastoral and spiritual guidance to all who visit. The ministry serves approximately 500 people weekly, including those who come for Mass and the sacraments as well as shoppers, tourists, mall employees and teenagers who use the mall.


Mass is celebrated Monday through Friday and the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered Monday through Saturday. The Rosary is recited each Wednesday after the 12:15 Mass. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is every Friday after the 12:15 Mass until 4 p.m.


The Franciscan Place has chapel, a reconciliation room, private conversation space, reading area, and information center. There is a staffed reception desk for assistance. Also the Franciscan Place Shop offers a variety of Christian and Franciscan books, Bibles, greeting cards, gifts for sacramental celebrations, holydays and holidays. Special Orders are available. Major credit cards are accepted.


ALL are welcome at The Franciscan Place.
