Earlier today, young Br. Francis was invested by Fr. David Hewko with the cord of St. Francis of Assisi to become the first invested member in New York State of the Archconfraternity of the Cord of St. Francis under the direction of the SSPX-Marian Corps. Deo gratias! Br. Francis took this name in honour of the Seraphic Father himself. Below is a video of the ceremony.
