Our Way Of Life

Our Franciscan lifestyle is patterned in the evangelical/apostolic tradition. Its characteristics are:

  • Gospel witness: Preaching the Word and peacemaking.
  • Life lived in community that centers around Jesus and his mission, and sharing all things.
  • Ability to find, be with, and serve God in all activity.
  • A daily rhythm (morning and evening prayer, Eucharist).
  • Flexibility and openness to change.
  • Blend of active and contemplative life.
  • Personal and communal prayer.
  • Mission focused on furthering the Reign of God.
  • Apostolic availability: Readiness to be sent where there are needs.
  • Simplicity, service and loving communal relationships.
