Ordo Franciscanus Saecularis

Secular Franciscan Order (SFO)

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Fraternity

Rednal & Stourbridge

West Midlands


The SFO belongs to the Franciscan Family and is "formed by the organic union of all the Catholic fraternities, whose members, moved by the Holy Spirit, commit themselves through profession to live the Gospel after the manner of St. Francis of Assisi in their secular state following the Rule approved by the Church." (Const. 1,3.)


"The rule and life of the Secular Franciscans is this: to observe the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by following the example of Saint Francis of Assisi, who made Christ the inspiration and the centre of his life with God and people [Secular Franciscans] should devote themselves especially to careful reading of the gospel, going from gospel to life and life to the gospel."

(Rule, Article 4.)

Our Lady of Perpetual Succour Fraternity, Rednal & Stourbridge, meets on the second Saturday of every month. For further information please access the Franciscan Listener and Annual Report. (See above.)
