Order of Lutheran Franciscans


Order of Lutheran Franciscans

The Order of Lutheran Franciscans is a religious order within the tradition of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

The Order is open to Lutheran women and men, married or single, lay or ordained, who vow to live according to "the spirit and practice" of the Evangelical Counsels of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience, as interpreted by the Order.[1] Individuals become members through a period of formation which includes postulancy, the novitiate and ultimately life profession.

The Order of Lutheran Franciscans is part of the larger family of Franciscans,[2] ecumenical in its endeavors, seeking to work with other Franciscans in the rebuilding of Christ's Church, care of creation, and justice for the poor and oppressed.
