Are you looking for a community with a contemplative heart and depth of spiritual yearning?
St Francis had a vision for the modern age to pursue justice, peace and loving care of creation.
A son of a rich merchant, a playboy, a soldier, a prisoner of war all of these and then life changed. Francis had a call from God to ‘rebuild his church’. Francis forsook his previous life and lived instead a life dedicated to God. Read more….. Other heard his message and came to join him. This was the very beginning of the Franciscan Orders.
The San Damiano Cross you see on the left was hanging in the church where he heard the call. It now hangs in the Bascilica of the poor Clares in Assisi.
Find out why St Francis is so relevant to our lives today and explore how we continue, lay, ordained, single, in committed relationships, to live out Franciscan principles in fellowship in this world. See if God is calling you to join us.

Day One — The Object
Jesus said, “Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour.” John 12.24 – 26
