Secular Franciscans

Secular Franciscans:

A Secular Franciscan is a member of the Third Order founded by St. Francis of Assisi. We are lay men and lay women striving to live the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the footsteps of St. Francis in the everyday circumstances of daily life. Our goal is always to go from Gospel to life and from life to Gospel.


St Adalbert parish has a Secular Franciscan Fraternity which meets the fourth Monday of every month in the lower church. We come together to pray, praise, being of service to the Lord and each other. Interested Catholics are welcome.

A "Come and See" meeting is held twice a year to invite interested persons to learn more about the Secular Franciscans way of life.
