Venerable Solanus Casey

Blessed Solanus Casey Regional Fraternity

Secular Franciscan Order

Connecticut, Rhode Island and adjacent portions of New York and Massachusetts

Gospel living for Secular Franciscans is this: to know the Lord Jesus, to seek his presence in every sphere of life and to share his mission in the Church. Such a life style is achieved through an ongoing change of heart and a life of worship. This gospel life takes on a natural expression through simple living, building community and selfless service and spurs us on to special ways of evangelization: social justice, attitudes towards work, Christian family living, ecology and peacemaking. (Fr. Benet A. Fonck, OFM)
