Our Goals And  Mission Page

The Goals of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical are:

  • We seek out laborers and advisors for our mission.
  •  We voice our story. 
  • We await a college of bishops to rise to oversee our mission. 
  • We seek to openly serve the Roman Catholic Church and minister within Roman Catholic ecclesiastical jurisdictions.

The Mission of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical are:

  • Welcome married Roman Catholic priests; 
  • Provide the People of God the Eucharist; 
  • Have married Roman Catholic priests available to Roman Catholic bishops; 
  • Affirm the marriages and lives of married Roman Catholic priests; 
  • Provide a home and support for married Roman Catholic priests through acceptance, communications, and ongoing activities of the Order;  
  • Welcome celibate Roman and Eastern Catholic priests in good standing in the Roman Catholic Church to serve as brothers; 
  • Support efforts of members, other clergy, and laity in their efforts to restore married priesthood to the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Church.
