Plenty of folks have asked and we’re happy to confirm that Chapter 2018 has been scheduled for June 28-July 1 in St. Louis, MO. The host for our community will be the Pallotine Renewal Center in Florissant.
8. Christ chose for himself a poor and humble life, even though he valued created things attentively and lovingly. Let the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans seek a proper spirit of detachment from temporal goods by simplifying our own material needs. Let us be mindful that according to the gospel we are stewards of the goods received for the benefit of God's children. We shall strive to purify our hearts from every tendency and yearning for possession and power.
