Who are we?

Secular Franciscans are Catholic lay men and women who are responding to a gift from the Holy Spirit of God, to emulate St. Francis of Assisi in their journey to follow Christ.


Those interested in exploring the possibility of becoming a Secular Franciscan are invited to email Julie Oswald (mojosfo@gmail.com) or phone her at 816-322-2404.

Where and When do we meet?

The St. Elizabeth Fraternity usually meets on the fourth Sunday of each month 1:30 PM at the Cure of Ars Catholic Church, 9401 Mission Rd., Leawood KS in the ARS II room.

Come & See

You might discover one of God's many blessings, He created, just for you!
