Pax Et Bonum
Peace and all good to you from the friars of the Order of Saint Francis! We hope that you find this site informative and helpful. If you do not find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us with your questions.
The Order of Saint Francis (OSF) is an active, Apostolic Christian religious order within the Anglican Communion, in communion with the See of Canterbury. Rather than living in an enclosed communal setting, OSF Brothers live independently in different parts of the world, with ministries based on the needs of their local communities. Members are baptized men who have been confirmed within the Anglican Communion, and who voluntarily commit to live by a set of professed vows for a term of years or for life.
To get a better understanding of who we are, please visit the 'Vocation' and 'Brothers' pages.
Supporting Mission Trip Puerto Rico
Several of the brothers are planning to go down to Puerto Rico and assist the diocese with their continuing cleanup efforts from last year's hurricane.
To help raise money for the trip nearly 90 people celebrated Pentecost today at St James Episcopal Church at our fundraising luncheon to benefit the mission trip to Puerto Rico this August. Many, many thanks to all of those who worked tirelessly behind the scenes!
