THIRD ORDER, SOCIETY OF ST FRANCIS
Province of the Pacific
Third Order of St Francis (TSSF) Province of the Pacific is part of a world-wide religious order which has existed in the Anglican tradition since the days of St Francis and St Clare in 1221. The Order's aim is to follow Jesus Christ in the footsteps of St Francis and St Clare sharing the joy of communion with God and creation and to work for social justice.
Who We Are
The Third Order consists of people, single or in committed relationships, who, though following ordinary professions, are called to a dedicated life of service to our Lord through prayer, study and work.
We share Francis’ concerns for the well-being of the earth, the poor, and the marginalized.
What We Do
The three aims of the order are:
- To make our Lord known and loved everywhere
- The spread the spirit of fellowship
- To live simply
Joining Our Order Are you seeking a spirituality of joy? Are you looking for a community
with a contemplative heart that pursues justice, peace, and the loving
care of creation?
