Congratulations to our new OFS Newton Fraternity Council. “May the Lord bless and keep you; may He make His Face shine upon you and be merciful to you; may He turn His Countenance toward you and give you His Peace!”

 Participation in fraternal life is essential for membership in the OFS. The brothers and sisters gather in local fraternities and the Fraternity Council makes specific provisions for the unity and care of its members. Fraternities welcome any person, whether a member of the Secular Franciscan Order or not, who wishes to participate in the Fraternity’s experience of prayer.
