Who are Secular Franciscans?
Secular Franciscans are a community of Catholic men and women in the world who seek to pattern their lives after Christ in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. We believe that as human beings and Christians, we have such a sublime vocation that we cannot fulfill it alone. In our common response to the Gospel, we work together in community toward a deep evangelical life and toward communion with all people. This is our way of life.
We are not a club or society: We are united in an international ORDER founded by Francis over 750 years ago. There are approximately 17,000 Secular Franciscans scattered throughout the United States alone.
