FRANCISCAN BROTHERS IN THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH SINCE 1919
THE SOCIETY OF SAINT FRANCIS
We are vowed Franciscan Brothers in the Episcopal Church, and part of a worldwide Anglican Franciscan community. We live together in community after the pattern of many Franciscans before us, and under vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Our way of life is over 800 years old, but our vision is fresh and new. As Franciscans, we live a blended life of contemplation and active service to the most vulnerable in our communities. Learn more about the Franciscan way of life, our history as an order, the distinctives of being a vowed religious in the Episcopal tradition, and the principles and projects that motivate us.
