Our fraternity goal for 2021 is to:
"Develop a program to expose our communities to the Franciscan way of life, while every member of our fraternity commits to daily contemplation of the Gospel."
Here's a recording of our fraternity's most recent ongoing formation presentation,
"Racism - What's A Secular Franciscan To Do?"
Enjoy! Pax et bonum!
Good Friday, 2021

The rule and life of the Secular Franciscans is this: to observe the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ by following the example of St. Francis of Assisi who made Christ the inspiration and the center of his life with God and people. SFO Rule, Chapter 2, Art. 4
The Secular Franciscan fraternity in Flagstaff, AZ, under the patronage of Blessed Franz Jägerstätter, currently has 28 professed members, 5 in candidacy , 1 affiliate and several in the early stages of exploring Franciscan spirituality. We meet every month at San Francisco de Asis Parish Center. Please join us at our gatherings! (currenly we are gathering via Zoom)
Secular Franciscans are people...
•with a Franciscan spirit, perspective, and ideals;
•with the ability to reflect Gospel values in their lives and accept conversion as needed;
•with a willingness to accept the Secular Franciscan Order as a primary and permanent commitment;
•with a desire to build up the Church and the Kingdom of God;
•with a sense of Franciscan responsibility for social action; and
•with a desire for contemplative prayer.
