About the Order of Lutheran Franciscans

The Mission of the OLF

Taking our place within the tradition of the Franciscan family, we passionately follow Jesus, rebuilding his Church, living lives of mutual care and accountability in harmony with the creeds and confessions of the Lutheran Church and both in the spirit and practice of the Evangelical Counsels, faithfully following the simple way of Saint Francis of Assisi.

- from the General Rule of the Order of Lutheran Franciscans

Four Franciscan foundations guide our mission as an Order:

We are a dispersed order, with siblings living around the United States (and Canada)
