Who are Franciscan Associates?

Franciscan Associates are women and men from all walks of life who share the values and spirit of St. Francis. Together they embrace the charism of St. Francis and St. Clare as they live the Gospel in their daily lives.

Associates make a commitment to integrate the Franciscan charism while remaining in their own lifestyle. They bond with the Sisters of St. Francis and each other in various ways: faith sharing, prayer, study, service and congregational celebrations.
