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 Twenty Nine – The Third Note (continued)
This joy is a divine gift, coming from union with God in Christ. It is still there even in times of darkness and difficulty, giving cheerful courage in the face of disappointment, and an inward serenity and confidence through sickness and suffering. Those who possess it can rejoice in weakness, insults, hardships, and persecutions for Christ’s sake; for when we are weak, then we are strong.
