Secular Franciscans dedicate themselves to follow the gospel of life through the example of St. Francis of Assisi. These lay men and women become a professed Franciscan in a journey that involves three formation stages and culminates in a lifelong commitment to live the gospel life.
Orientation (3 months) introduces folks to the lives of St. Francis and St. Clare and share in Franciscan prayer life.
Inquiry (6 months) is an in-depth study of the lives of St. Francs and St. Clare, the Franciscan Charism and Franciscan history.
Candidacy (18-24 months) is the final formal period of initiation. As an immersion into fraternity life, it culminates in a most Solemn Profession to follow the gospel life.
All are welcome to attend the meetings on the third Monday of the month at 9 a.m. in Classroom 7. For more information contact Cathy Wiechering at 715-358-6753.
