WELCOME TO THE ST. MAXIMILIAN KOLBE FRATERNITY
ABOUT THE SECULAR FRANCISCANS

The Secular Franciscan Order (Latin: Ordo Franciscanus Saecularis, postnominal abbreviation O.F.S.; also called the Third Order Secular) is a community of Catholic men and women in the world who seek to pattern their lives after Jesus in the spirit of Francis of Assisi.

ABOUT OUR FRATERNITY

The St. Maximillian Kolbe Secular Franciscan fraternity started in 1989 as part of the Kolbe Project to help AIDS victims in the Houston area.  Since that time we have grown and taken on new challenges to help our community but we continue to keep God at the center of everything we do.

FORMATION

Have you ever wanted to grow in your relationship with Jesus?  Have you ever felt you wanted do something to help the church?  Have you ever considered being a Secular Franciscan?  Formation is the process of learning about the Secular Franciscans and if it is for you.
