Our Fraternity would be honored to bring an introduction to Franciscan Spirituality to the parishioners of our local parishes.

The Directors of these Franciscan Mini-Retreats have over twenty years experience each as professed Secular Franciscans.

The format for these parish evenings is flexible; the following is a popular example:

Welcome and Opening Prayer

Conference: The Francis Effect:

The Spirituality of St. Francis and St. Clare for the Twenty-First Century

Guided Meditation: Francis, the Beloved of Christ

Closing Prayer Service

Refreshments and Fellowship

The presentation includes video clips, and is followed by a brief period for questions and answers. The fraternity will provide a written program for the mini-retreat for each attendee.

If you think your pastor may be interested in bringing this program (daytime or evening) to your parish, kindly let us know and we'll send Father/Msgr. a brochure, then follow up to make arrangements. There is never any fee for the program.
