Secular Franciscans are men and women, single or married, who have answered a call to the Franciscan life. After a time of formation, members of this group join the Franciscan family by making a public profession to a Rule of Life given to them by the Church and St. Francis. This life “in community” energizes and inspires them as they seek daily conversion in following Christ. Contact Pam De Ciechi 636-978-0622 email@example.com
From Saint John Paul II (1988, Christifideles Laici)
“Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights – for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture – is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination”.
