Come and See | An Invitation from the Padre Pio Secular Franciscans
Has your heart been moved by the prayers, life and stories of St. Francis of Assisi? Would you like to learn more about him and how to live your life with the same holy simplicity, true peace and perfect joy, as he did?
If so, Christ may be calling you to explore the Secular Franciscan life. The Secular Franciscan Order was established by St. Francis of Assisi more than 800 years ago. Our purpose is to bring the Gospel to life where we live and where we work. We look for ways to embrace the Gospel in our lives and try to help others to do likewise.
The Padre Pio Secular Franciscan Fraternity is holding a Come and See during our gathering on Sunday, September 22, 2019, from 1 – 3 p.m. We meet at St. Francis of Assis Church, 11401 Leesville Road, Raleigh, NC 27613 in the Founders Room (down the hall from our main worship space).
This is an opportunity to hear from other men and women who are living according to the Franciscan rule. Come and see what it’s all about. For more information, send an email message to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
