Plenary Council 2018
Join us for this year’s celebration of the Order’s Plenary Council. From June 12th – 28th, we will reflect on contemporary realities in the world, the Church, and the Order, spending time in prayer, study, discussion, and decision-making. As we move towards the eighth centenary of the meeting of St Francis with the Sultan al-Malik al Kamil in 1219, this gathering is an invitation to embody a life of dialogue by seeking concrete ways of listening, discerning, and putting into action.
