Canticle of the Creatures

Welcome to the website of the Secular Franciscan Order in Australia. Saint Francis of Assisi who died on the 3rd October, 1226, left his life of luxury to live the Gospel by joyfully following what Jesus did and said. For over 800 years people around the world have been inspired to live the Gospel following the example of St Francis of Assisi who was often called ‘the little poor man.”
