St. Mary of the Angels – Fraternity Name

Dec 8, 2014

The name chosen for our fraternity of the Third Order Secular of St. Francis is “St. Mary of the Angels”.

 

The name is in honour of the chapel (also known as the Porziuncola) that St. Francis of Assisi rebuilt and in which the Franciscan Order was born.

 

More information about the chapel, which still exists inside the Basilica of the same name, can be found at this link:
