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 Robert Brill ([email protected]) or call him at 785-832-2279.

Where and When do we meet?

The Brother Jacoba Fraternity usually meets the first Sunday of every month and 1:30 PM. We gather at the Haskell Catholic Center at 2301 Barker Ave, Lawrence, KS 66046. At each meeting, we begin with the Sunday Evening II prayers from the Shorter Christian Prayer (Liturgy of the Hours) including group prayer. This is followed by business/service items, formation, closing prayer and a social time. All are welcome to attend our meetings.

Come & See

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