Order of Franciscans Secular

The Secular Franciscan Order was formed by St. Francis of Assisi for those people who were not able to join the Order of Brothers and Priests or the Poor Clares.  The are lay people who want to live the gospel in joy and service, and are part of a fraternity.  They have a time of formation to meet people and learn about the Order and an active group engaged in serving others and strengthening one another.  The Fraternity of Our Lady of Guadalupe gathers at Holy Cross Retreat Center.  For more information you can contact Lori Grumet at lagrumet@gmail.com or 325 725 1689, or you can view this brochure.

Below is a picture of most of the members of the fraternity and some guests when the three in the front center were welcomed into candidacy, and one of the Fraternity Council elected in September 2022.
