Based on our desire to protect the health and safety of our community from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), our Gatherings will be temporarily suspended. We will update this site in forthcoming messages.
The Secular Franciscan Order (SFO) is a branch of the worldwide Franciscan Family. We are single and married. We work, worship and play in the community where we live.
They are people who have a deep concern for enriching their faith-lives. Secular Franciscans gather in Fraternity to experience four elements: Social, Formation, Business and Prayer. They have a desire to grow in their personal spirituality and to allow the Franciscan spirit to become a vital part of their lives.
Secular Franciscans follow the SFO Rule that requires us to spend time in community with our Franciscan brothers and sisters.
We gather at least monthly. We support each other through the ups and downs of daily life. We pray together. We take opportunities to learn about our Church, our community and our world.
Our rule mandates us to be involved in apostolic ministries and with youth. We are called to action, we embrace the call joyfully. Examples of Franciscan service include: teaching religious education, leading the rosary after masses, committing to Perpetual Adoration, serving as steward of the environment and working with the poor, sick and homeless.
