Secular Franciscan Order

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. Our purpose is to bring the gospel to life where we live and where we work. We look for practical ways to embrace the gospel in our lives and try to help others to do likewise.

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.

In your are interested in learning more about the SFO, and exploring a possible calling to this Franciscan way of life visit one of our two monthly meetings, or contact us.
