Is God Calling You to the Secular Franciscan Order?
To become a Secular Franciscan, you must be an actively practicing Catholic (of any of the rites in union with Rome)
The process of becoming a professed Secular Franciscan is a journey that involves three separate stages and culminates in a lifelong commitment to live the gospel following the example of St. Francis of Assisi. This formation process unfolds in regularly scheduled formation sessions during which the home study material is thoroughly discussed.
