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 life Gospel to Life and Life to Gospel. Feel free to explore this site and please excuse the dust as we grow and develop our online presence. Pax et Bonum!
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 was not just a gift for the Church or for the World in the 13th Century – He is a saint for today! He was called to rebuild his church. The Franciscan movement of sisters, friars, popes, nobility, and lay men and women have had profound effects on the whole of human history since, Francis first walked the dusty cobblestone robs of a medieval city.
