Franciscan at Heart

Franciscan Abbey of the Immanuel Communion of Love (FAICL) a part of the Third Order of Saint Francis Ministry (OFE)

We are a body of Christians who follow Christ in the footsteps of Francis, Anthony and Clare of the Franciscan Order.


Our Order is a group of men and women of Christian Catholic Independent under a Chart of the Order of Franciscans Ecumenical. We are an order of men and women who have dedicated themselves to following the footsteps of Saint Francis. Our members serve as Chaplain Ministers in the community and work in capacities to help the needy.

We are a loving order that does not discriminate based on age, race, physical capabilities, marital status, employment or social status. 

We do not live in a monastery, friary or convent nor require our members to give up their jobs or move away from their homes, friends, and families. We will not ask you to make a life-changing sacrifice to belong to our Order.

Our way of conduct is in our Rule of Life, based on the Original Rule, established in 1221, for the First Order of Franciscans. 

We strive to lead our lives according to the words and work of Christ, following the example and spirituality of our fraternal father, Saint Francis of Assisi.

Our traditional Vows are the following:
