Father Joe and the Marlins

We, the family of the Parish of Sts. Francis & Clare are a Catholic, Christian community that reaches to all God’s people by providing a living witness to all called from various and diverse backgrounds – all are welcome to the table of Jesus. As followers of Francis, we we are called to celebrate the diversity and uniqueness of every person as God’s gift to us. In the spirit of Franciscan joy , we go forth to proclaim the Good News – using words if necessary.

We want to welcome the entire community enjoy the warmth and love of our parish by participating in the sacramental life of the Church; especially who have been turned away by others.

We are a progressive, catholic community, where ALL ARE WELCOME. Click here to visit the website of the Franciscans of Fort Lauderdale

"I’m interested in going to church but don’t know where to start?"
Getting started with anything new is never easy.
One option would be to go to church with someone you know who does go. You could sit with them and they could help you by explaining what happens and so on. Perhaps they might introduce you to some others who are there.
If you’d rather go on your own then just plan to arrive five to ten minutes before the starting time. If you are feeling shy you can sit near the back or ask the greeter to seat you and you will often be introduced to a couple of people around you.
It’s also good if you’re new to a church to say hello to people you’ve never met before. Churches can be very friendly places and most folks are only too glad to be of help or to answer any questions that you might have.


The Communion of Ecumenical Catholic Churches (CECC) seeks to actively engage all people in the celebrations of life and community in the Catholic tradition. We take seriously the freedom of faith and conscience of the individual. We strive to be an inviting and participatory Church, open to diversity, accompanying people in their life journey, a gathering of communities that is constantly being renewed, a Church that offers a home and protection, where each person can receive and live out their faith without fear. Our decisions are made by laity, clergy and bishop working together. Our faith is celebrated together, rooted in tradition, open to the future. We warmly encourage you to look at our many resources so that you may better understand our household of faith.


We believe in God, the father almighty,
creator of heaven & earth -
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
& was born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died & was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he arose again.
He ascended into heaven
& is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again judge the living & the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body
& the life everlasting
