We are so joyfilled to have you land on our little cyberspace. We are members of the OFS which is legally known as Ordo Franciscanus Saecularis within the Roman Catholic Church – a.k.a. Secular Franciscan Order. We are located in southeastern Wyoming with members from five different parishes spread out over 112 miles along Interstate 80. Due to high altitudes, crazy winds and weather it can be especially challenging for our members to meet.
We have joined this little neck of the internet to reach out to each other. We also welcome those who might be discerning their vocation. If by chance you just landed here on accident that is ok too. The Holy Spirit moves through chances and leads us all down mysterious crooked pathways. Feel free to wander around with Him. Below is a short video to enjoy, followed by some quick bits of info from our featured pages. Above you will find a robust menu if you wish to linger awhile longer.
We are celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the New Rule of 1978. Please feel free to learn more about us and this vibrant rule for today and the future.
Pax Et Bonum!
We the Secular Franciscan’s of St. Maximilian Kolbe Fraternity welcome you to our new website. We invite you to join us for our monthly Fraternity meeting where we travel together as we live Gospel to Life and Life to Gospel. Feel free to explore this site and excuse our dust as we grow.
Perfect Joy and all!
Our geographical fraternity is part of the Santa Maria de Las Montannas Regional Fraternity with members from southeast Wyoming and southwest Nebraska. We are Catholic men and woman who are members of the Secular Franciscan Order also known as the OFS. The secular franciscan order was founded by St. Francis in 1221 A.D.
The life of St. Francis is not just a gift for the Church or for the World in the 13th Century. He is a gift for today!
As members of one of his orders, (all 350,000 + of us) we follow his charism, like his friars and sisters do, but in a secular way. The Franciscan charism is so large, we fit it in too! So why are we so in love with this man?
