    Our Mission


    Living Gospel to Life and Life to Gospel... This is what we strive to do. Gospel to Life means we are to take the teachings of Jesus and apply them our daily life situations. We strive to demonstrate to our fellow man what Jesus did. Strive to bring peace and draw people to God by living the Gospel message. We must be ready to forgive, to comfort and most of all to love. We must die to ourselves. Life to Gospel means we are to conform our life to Jesus' life. We are to love, suffer, pray, and forgive as He did. This is our way of life

    Minister's Message


    Thank you for visiting our website.  It is my hope that you will gain information that brings you joy, peace, enlightenment and challenge.  In many ways, these were among the key qualities in the life of St. Francis of Assisi 800 years ago who we, as Secular Franciscans today, attempt to follow; and in so doing,  also strive to find joy, peace, enlightenment and challenge.  To achieve that, it takes discernment; discernment is just another word for journey. 

    Prayer Requests
