The Secular Franciscan Order involves a permanent commitment towards personal union with the Lord Jesus in the tradition and spirituality of the Franciscan Family. It involves the proper role of a secular person in the Society and in the Church within the context of the total Franciscan Fraternity. This involves living Gospel to life, life to Gospel, thus following Jesus in the footsteps of St. Francis. In the process of achieving this goal, the formation also offers to the candidate a process of discernment in seeking this way of life.

These goals are addressed in our local chapter through monthly meetings, which include study of appropriate books, the distribution of Holiday food baskets, serving meals at the Christian Aide Center, knitting and distribution of Christmas toys to local needy children as well as individual service for the Church including the Council, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Society, Readers, and home visitation.
