We are a group of men and women following Jesus in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi. Although we enjoy the fellowship that we have sharing our faith and praying together, we are not a social organization. We are an order within the Catholic Church; the third branch of the Franciscan Order.
Because other people have explained what the Franciscan Order is and what it means to be a Secular Franciscan, I am, for now, inserting links to those pages below. As I develop this page, I will expand our own explanation and move these links to, predictably enough, the page of "links to other sites of interest." For now, please visit the following links that explain who we are as a fraternity and in what ministries and apostolates we are involved and why.

Who are God's servants but his minstrels who should comfort the human heart and lead it to spiritual joy?" ~ Mirror of Perfection, 100
