Plans are well underway for our 100th Anniversary Celebration! Father Joseph Crookston founded what was then the Order of St. Francis on September 14, 1919, in Merrill, Wisconsin. On September 14, 2019, we will celebrate our Centenary at the Episcopal Church of St. Luke in the Fields, NYC. St. Luke was the site of the original prayer group who began interceding for God to establish a Franciscan presence in the Episcopal Church.

The event will include a celebration Mass. The celebrant and preacher will be the Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church USA.

A luncheon will follow with keynote speaker Ilia Delio OSF, a Franciscan sister, speaker, writer and scholar. If you've heard or read her work, you'll know this isn't to be missed.

More details to follow. For questions or to make sure you get all the updates, contact (And sign up for our mailings below!)
