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 is a challenge for our members to meet always monthly especially in winter.
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. The Holy Spirit moves through chances and leads us all down mysterious crooked pathways. Feel free to wander around with Him. Below the Music video are 3 quick bits of info from our featured pages. Above you will find a robust menu if you wish to linger awhile.
Oh take a moment to put yourself in the right headspace and listen to this chill video by the Franciscan Friars of Renwal and the Catholic Underground. They are members of the worldwide Franciscan Family. We think they are awesome. Pax et Bonum!

We the Secular Franciscan’s of St. Maximilian Kolbe Fraternity welcome you to our new website.

Feel free to explore this site and please excuse the dust as we grow and develop our online presence.
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 profoundly affected the whole of human history since, Francis first walked the dusty cobblestone roads of a medieval city.
