Welcome to St. Elizabeth of Hungary Region OFS
Secular Franciscans are a community of Catholic men and women in the world who seek to pattern their lives after Christ in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. We believe that as human beings and Christians, we have such a sublime vocation that we cannot fulfill it alone. In our common response to the Gospel, we work together in community toward a deep evangelical life and toward communion with all people. This is our way of life.
Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.
Find the nearest Fraternity to you. Then search for your fraternity under the state for details and contact information.
The Mission of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Region of the Secular Franciscan Order is to proclaim and witness to the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ, inspired by the example of Saint Francis of Assisi, by promoting and supporting the local fraternities in the Northern New England area.
Together, through the lives of diverse Catholic men and women in local fraternities, we profess commitment to these ideals. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we strive to humbly serve all people, especially the poor and forgotten.
We celebrate joyfully the gift of life in all creation and recognize God’s living presence in the world.
