I am excited to be involved with helping to start a new Secular Franciscan Order (SFO) fraternity here in Charlottesville, Virginia. I have always been drawn to St. Francis and Franciscan Spirituality, and was interested in looking into the SFO, but most fraternities were too far away. Thankfully, Carl Stacy is a member of the SFO, who lives in Central Virginia, and started the idea of getting our own fraternity here in Charlottesville. We are a group of lay men and women who are learning to follow Christ in the footsteps of St. Francis.
If you are interested in learning more about Franciscan spirituality, or possibly find yourself discerning a call to the Secular Franciscan Order, please join us.
Meetings are held at:
Mount LaVerna Fraternity
Church of the Incarnation, Room #8
1465 Incarnation Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22901
In 2013 meetings will be on the first Saturday of each month at 12:15pm
Following is a video about the Secular Franciscan Order, that details the history and famous people who were part of the Secular Franciscan Order:
