The many faces of St. Francis from the Basilica


The Franciscan Order of the Divine Compassion is an Anglican Religious Order.

Here's the scripture verse of the day from BibleGateway.

In the FODC, we're a group of men and women, single and married, clergy and laity, serving God in the world.

Come in, sit down, make yourself comfortable. We're happy you came to visit us.

There are many things you can do here:
listen to the Bible,
pray with us,
discover, or rediscover, devotional practices to enrich your spiritual life,
download free classic Christian books for your devotional reading,
shop the bookstore for more current materials for your spiritual growth,
join our prayer list,
learn a little about St. Francis,
learn something of what it means to be a member of our community,
and even download the application to join us.

Or then again, you just might just want to search the Bible for that verse that's been eluding you.

Lookup a word or passage in the Bible

However you choose to travel through these pages, we want you to know one thing.
God loves you as you are,
but He loves you too much to want you to remain that way!

God's call to all of us is to repent of everything that separates us from Him and to grow closer to Him.
St. Francis came preaching repentance, love, and peace.
As Franciscans, this is our call as well, to encourage people to grow ever closer to God.
And the first step of that journey towards God is repentance.
As St. Francis taught us, conversion is an on-going process.

Again, welcome to the website, come in, look around, make yourself at home, and visit us often.
Our doors, like Jesus' arms, are open.
