LOCATION OF GATHERINGS

TYPICAL GATHERING STRUCTURE
****(For when we are able to gather in-person)****
We start with prayer and move into what we call 'fraternitas' - where we spend 30 minutes socializing with one another, having something to eat and getting 'food for our souls' from one another. Then we move onto a brief business meeting, followed by ongoing formation (where we deepen our understanding of a Franciscan topic). We close our gathering with prayer. Our gatherings last for 2 hours.
WHAT IS A 'GATHERING'?
A monthly gathering is much more than a meeting or a social function. It runs deeper than that. As Secular Franciscans we are called to community as part of our lifelong profession. We are called to relate with each other in prayer, ongoing formation, common ministries and fellowship. Our monthly gatherings give us that opportunity to grow in our Franciscan life, while lifting one another up - emotionally, socially and spiritually. Check us out - you will see what we mean!

You don't have to be a Secular Franciscan to attend our gatherings. All are welcome! Check us out! We will begin promptly at noon and will be done around 2:00. We ask that you bring a dish to share, your own drink and your personal plate, utensils and napkin (we call this a 'mess kit'). The use of single-use plastics and styrofoam is discouraged. We encourage the use of reusable plates, cups, napkins and flatware. Caring for our environment is a Franciscan principle!
