LOCATION OF GATHERINGS
Starting in July, 2021, we will resume our in-person gatherings! We will supplement with a Zoom option for those who are unable to meet face-to-face.
Our gatherings are held at San Francisco de Asis Parish Center - in the lower level - in Bonaventure Hall.
1600 E. Route 66 - Flagstaff AZ 86001
We start at noon and are done around 2:00.
TYPICAL GATHERING STRUCTURE
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. You may either bring a dish to share (if you feel comfortable sharing food) or you may bring your own lunch. 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!

CHECK OUT OUR GATHERINGS!
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 (or your own meal if you are not comfortable sharing food at this time), 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!
