The Vision of the Franciscan Federation is
to deepen the understanding and love
of the Third Order Regular charism
in our lives in order to share this gift
with the Church and the World.


The Mission of the Franciscan Federation is to promote the exploration and study of Franciscan Evangelical Life and its implications for these times and for our world. The Federation provides national and regional opportunities to collaborate, gather and celebrate so that the brothers and sisters can better live the Third Order Regular call to conversion, contemplation, poverty and humility.
