A Franciscan Creed
Inspired by the vision of St. Francis, we commit ourselves to the Gospel as our way of life.
Our world view is centered in Christ, we see Jesus Christ as the beginning, the way and the goal of all creation. This world vision reveals to us a God who is Father and a life which is love. This demands of us a life as brothers and sisters of all people and of creation.
Saint Francis of Assisi (born Giovanni Francesco di Bernardone; 1181/1182 – October 3, 1226) was an Italian Catholic friar and preacher. He founded the men’s Franciscan Order, the women’s Order of St. Clare, and the lay Third Order of Saint Francis. St. Francis is one of the most venerated religious figures in history.Read more
