The Matt Talbot Secular Franciscan Fraternity

We have an “emerging” Matt Talbot Secular Franciscan Fraternity  at Our House Ministries. We had our first meeting in July 2013 and currently have over 25 professed members and a number of members in formation.

Our monthly meetings are usually held on the first Monday of each month beginning at 6:00 PM. We begin with Mass in the Matt Talbot Chapel at 1449 S. 29th St. After Mass we take care of some business and then break into groups for formation. We have four groups at various stages of formation including Orientation, Inquiry, Candidacy and those who are professed. Those who are professed have ongoing formation.

(Note: Due to the ongoing Covid issue we have been meeting online. Contact Ken to get the online meeting information.)

Anyone is welcome to come join us for an evening to see if they might be interested in becoming a Third Order or Secular Franciscan. Please contact Ken at or call 215-327-3236 for more information.
