Are you called ?

Be an associate of the Franciscans of Fort Lauderdale

Prayer: Join with the friars in prayer, especially for the needs and intentions of Sts. Francis and Clare Parish, and vocations to the community.

Community: Spend time each month with the Friars as spiritual guide through prayer, education and informal activities and discussion.

Service: Become actively involved in a variety of ways to offer assistance to our parish and the surrounding community as examples of Franciscan spirituality.

Growth: Experience your faith more deeply by exploring the joy and richness of a spiritual life led by Franciscan ideals.

This opportunity is offered to all men and women who express a desire to spend more time in prayer, learning and fellowship. Initially, applicants would spend a period of time exploring the purpose, work and goals of this informal religious community. After this ‘novitiate’ members would ‘profess’ annual promises to the community and receive a San Damiano cross as a physical sign of their membership. Persons living outside the parish area are encouraged to remain members. Men and women of ALL ages are welcome.

To inquire more contact Fr Vinnie at church, or send a message.
