Called to Serve- Birth of A Secular Franciscan Fraternity by Toni Maconi, OFS
Paperback- 107 pages Perfect bound first edition
In the 1980s an intrepid group of volunteers helped renovate a rundown New York City building, transforming it into a retreat house for the poor and those who worked with the poor. This oasis in the South Bronx proved to be fertile ground for the beginnings of The Little Portion Secular Franciscan Fraternity. This is the story of that fraternity, and also a guide to the Rule of the Secular Franciscan Order and what it means to live that Rule. For those looking to join a fraternity or form their own, this book provides insight and inspiration.
