Come in, make yourself comfortable, hang your hat or your habit and let us get to know each other! Where are you from? Tell us about you? What draws you to Francis and Clare?
I am a professed member of OEF, I live in Southeast Florida, I worship at an Episcopal Church & I simply fell in love with Francis and Clare about 10 years ago and a long and interesting journey brought me to OEF.
I look forward to hearing from you. And again welcome, welcome!
Hello. I have been aware of the Third Order for over fourty years, having been a member while I was in the seminary so many years ago. But, there was no followup afterwards by me and no activity in school. I have been pondering membership in the Third Order for some time. I am looking for an indepth but not ponderous schema to assist myself spiritually and also a means thru which to help others. I am an active Methodist, of rather a liberal bent, having been raised Roman Catholic and entering a college seminary, many decades ago; and a Stephen Minister at my church. I would appreciate any information from you about what the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans has enable you to do. I am a bit tentative about hhis. Bob Mason
As a former RC seminarian, and former SFO member of rather a liberal bent myself, I do believe that the OEF is perfectly suited to supply you with the indepth but not ponderous schema which you seek. A bit tentative is prudent! Why not find out more by clicking the "Contact the DFC" button on the left, which will put you in touch with the Director of Formation? He will be more than willing to help you discern whether you want to learn more about us!
