Welcome to Franciscan Seculars

Welcome to I hope you enjoy your journey around its pages!  The dream of this website is to introduce some aspects of the spiritual journey of living life as a Secular Franciscan whose cloister is the world.

Although this website is not affiliated with the official online presence of the OFS,  Ordo Franciscanus Saecularis, the Secular Franciscan Order – its aim is to share with you some of the wonders of God’s Love and Creation as seen through the eyes of St Francis and St Clare of Assisi and many other Franciscans today.

If you have any thoughts, queries or questions feel free to email
