Secular Franciscans, together with all people of good will, are called to build a more fraternal and evangelical world so that the kingdom of God may be brought about more effectively. Mindful that anyone “who follows Christ, the perfect man, becomes more of a man himself,” let them exercise their responsibilities competently in the Christian spirit of service. (OFS Rule, #14)
We are Franciscan not because of what we do, but because of who we are. It is our identity as Franciscans that inspires us to serve others, each in our own way. To find out more about what each of us do, please come and visit us at our next General Gathering. We will be glad to share!
In addition to our personal initiatives, the St Bernardine of Siena Fraternity offers financial and spiritual support to the following organizations:
- Franciscan Action Network (FAN)
- Franciscan Outreach Association
- The Port Ministries
- St. Francis of Assisi Mission
Your help in supporting these organizations would be greatly appreciated.
