Secular Franciscans

The Parish of Holy Cross-Saint John the Baptist has three active communities of Secular Franciscans. The Secular Franciscan Order gives lay people who do not feel called to consecrated life a way of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ after the example of Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi. Whether you are single or married, young or old, we invite you to become a Secular Franciscan and join the worldwide Franciscan family.
