Reverend Friar Bryan Hajovsky, OFM Conv, is a Conventual Franciscan. He ministers alongside ten fellow friars at the Basilica & National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Ohio. He serves as the parish deacon, as Assistant Pilgrimage Director, and as a Spanish language teacher at the local Catholic school.

The Franciscans were founded by Saint Francis of Assisi and have a rich charism focused upon community life and serving the Church in whatever ways needed. The Conventual Franciscans minister worldwide, including at the basilicas of Saint Francis in Assisi, Saint Anthony in Padua, and more.
