在俗方濟會上主僕人會團

 

歷史:        聖方濟亞西西(1182-1226年),度過輕浮的青年期後,拋棄了父親的財產,堅決地皈依了天主。他酷愛貧窮,度著耶穌基督的福音生活,向人人宣揚了天主的愛情。當時很多人跟隨他,並得到聖座批准,從此建立了小兄弟會(即今日的「方濟會」)。他與嘉勒創立了一個修女會,即今日的嘉勒隱修會,他亦為適於生活在世俗中者,設立了補贖第三會,即今天的「在俗方濟會」。

 

宗旨:        我們雖然生活在世俗中,卻不願按世俗的精神生活。我們願意謙誠地履行我們的使命,就是以聖善的生活作酵母,建設耶穌基督的妙體;我們的聖教會。

 

架構:        在俗方濟會是全球性的在俗修會,每一地區的在俗方濟會都是隸屬羅馬總會管核。成員除了在俗者外,還包括主教,神父和執事參與成為會員。

 

關於我們:‘‘上主僕人會團”於2017年10月得到屋崙教區批准成立。成為首個在北美以華人為主的會團,我們以中文及英文進行會議。每月第二主日彌撒完後,大約四時在St. Leander Church舉行月會。

The Secular Franciscan Order – Servants of God Fraternity


The Secular Franciscan Order was established by St. Francis of Assisi more than 800 years ago. Our purpose is to bring to Gospel to life and life to Gospel where we live and where we work. We look for ways to embrace the Gospel in our lives and try to help others to do likewise.

History:


St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226), after a frivolous youth, abandoned his wealth
and resolutely converted to God. He loved extreme poverty, lived the gospel of
Jesus Christ, and preached God’s love to everyone. At that time, many people
followed him, and with the approval of the Holy See, the Little Brotherhood (now
the “Franciscan Order”) was established. He and Clare founded a congregation of
nuns, today the Poor Clare, and he established the Third Order of Saint Francis for
those choose to live in the secular world but adhere to the teachings and spiritual
disciplines of the founder. Today it is called the Secular Franciscan Order.


Franciscan Focus:

  • Needs of the poor
  • Unceasing work for peace
  • Justice for all people
  • Concern for family life
  • Mary is the model for Franciscan Family
  • Work is a gift from God
  • Eucharist is source and center
  • Dedication to giving
