pax et bonum!

Welcome to the Order of Lutheran Franciscans (OLF)!

The OLF is a religious community of vowed Lutheran friars and sisters, dedicated to Christ and the rebuilding of his Church.

Our beginnings are found in the mendicant friars of the Middle Ages: people who were seeking to follow the Christ of the Gospels in their daily lives.  Saint Francis of Assisi w
as himself a mendicant friar, and the founder of the Franciscan movement.

Whether you sought us out or stumbled upon us by "accident," we welcome you here and invite you to explore our online friary!

The OLF is a member of the Franciscan Action Network.
