Secular Franciscan Order

“They have been made living members of the Church in Baptism”

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.

The first stage, Orientation, provides time for dialogue and developing relationships in fraternity.

The second stage, Inquiry, is the first formal period of initiation.  It is a time of in-depth study of the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare.

The third stage, Candidacy, is the final formal period of initiation.  It is a time of preparing for permanent commitment by immersion into fraternity life.
