Erection of the Fraternity of St. Francis of Assisi
On Sunday March 27, 2016 (Easter Sunday), Fr. Juan Carlos Ortiz erected the Fraternity of St. Francis of Assisi in a ceremony conducted in Buffalo, New York. Deo gratias! A new page has been set up that reflects this new fraternity and the Third Order Secular of St. Francis in general. The fraternity is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, but welcomes members (professed, novices, & postulants) from other fraternities and isolated tertiaries throughout the world that want to remain faithful to the spirit of St. Francis and the line of the saintly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. We also welcome potential postulants who believe that God is calling them to the tertiary life.
We thank Fr. Ortiz, a faithful son of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, for erecting the fraternity and agreeing to being its Director. Deo gratias again!
