Our Rule


The Franciscan Family, as one among many  spiritual families raised up by the Holy spirit in the life of the Church, seeks to unite the people of God-laity, religious and clergy-who recognize in their vocation the call to follow Christ more faithfully in the footsteps of Francis and Clare in various ways and forms but in lift-giving union with each other we intend to make present the charism of our common Seraphic Father in the life and mission of the church (Ch. 1.1)
