Pax Et Bonum
Peace and all good to you from the friars of the Order of Saint Francis! We hope that you find this site informative and helpful. If you do not find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us with your questions.
The Order of Saint Francis (OSF) is an active, Apostolic Christian religious order within the Anglican Communion, in connection with the See of Canterbury. Rather than living in an enclosed communal setting, OSF Brothers live independently in different parts of the world, with ministries based on the needs of their local communities. Members are baptized men who have been confirmed within the Anglican Communion, and who voluntarily commit to live by a set of professed vows for a term of years or for life.
To get a better understanding of who we are, please visit the 'Vocation' and 'Brothers' pages.
Little Sisters of Saint Clare (LSSC) investiture of new companion
On august 10th the brothers were very happy to join the Little Sisters of Saint Clare for the investiture of Patricia as a companion with their community. Afterwards we sat down for a nice lunch to socialize and had a chance to discuss ministries.

The warmth of Brother Sun and the warmth of true Brotherhood both abounded at this year’s annual Convocation of the Order of Saint Francis, which was held in July at the beautiful St. Andrew’s House Retreat Center in Union, Washington. The Brothers participated in a rigorous daily schedule of communal worship, vocational and Chapter meetings, “workshops” and theological discussions, while making sure to leave some time for solitary reflection and for walking the trails around the gorgeous woods and ocean inlet that surround the retreat center. St. Andrew’s has become a kind of “Mother House” for the Order, a place of spiritual rejuvenation where the Brothers come together in fellowship to refresh the bonds of Brotherhood, worship in community, discuss their ministries, take or renew vows, and enjoy together the restorative beauty of rural Western Washington. We hope you will enjoy this video of our time together!
