Ecclesiastical Affiliation Charter 

A Ministry of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical

Date of Charter:  June 2, 2016

The Metropolitan Archdiocese of Saint Thomas the Apostle
 

We establish Ecclesiastical Affiliation Charters with religious orders, monasteries, abbeys, churches, archdioceses, dioceses, and ministry organizations to help them fulfill their respective missions. Each charter member will operate independently maintaining their current system of disciplines and teachings. They accept the authority of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical over all matters of Faith and Practices. The charter member may not legally or financially obligate the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical in anyway.​​

The Abbot General of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical (OFE) Ecclesiastical Affiliation Charter is the Very Rev. Friar Michael Cuozzo+, OFE, DD, STD, PhD.
