Group Description

Choose to love unconditionally.

We are the Community Faithful Companions of St Francis of Assisi. We welcome you to come and share our life of love and fellowship in the way of St Francis of Assisi. We are Sisters and Brothers from around the world, consecrated by vows or promises, who have been called by the Holy Spirit to establish a Christian way of life without monastery walls; to experience a bond of friendship and hospitality with all who seek the living Christ. The Faithful Companions are part of the global Franciscan family, living the ideals of Francis and Clare in our own special way, within our own homes or in small communities. For the faithful Companions, as with all Franciscans, the heart of our life is the faithful living of Christ’s twofold command; "love God and love your neighbour as yourself," in the natural rhythms of daily life; through Scripture, Eucharistic sharing and Daily Prayer, also a hidden life of contemplation, charitable works, and shared life with others – these are the means which enable us to seek and find God with a pure heart. Of course active participation in the local Christian community remains important for rooted-ness in the Christian life. The Faithful Companions spirituality seeks above all else a loving union with God through a loving service of our neighbour.

It is up to each individual Companion, according to the circumstances of their life, to set up their own structures for living the basic elements of Franciscan spirituality, which are firmly planted in the Christian Gospels. We are welcoming of all Christian peoples, regardless of the life issues which have caused many Christians to be discarded and cast adrift by other religious communities and so called "Mainstream Churches."

We are a truly authentic Franciscan Community within the Ecumenical Catholic Church here in the UK.
