Order of Friars Minor in Great Britain 



The Troubadour appears two or three times a year. It is described as "A Missionary Magazine at the service of
  • The Franciscan Missionaries from the United Kingdom working throughout the world but especially in disaster areas;
  • The Franciscan Missionary Union."
The provincial administration of the FMU and of the Troubadour is now based in our Friary in Glasgow, where it can rely on a wide circle of generous supporters.
