2012 Third Order Gathering

On October 28, 2012, Saint Francis of the Rogue Valley sponsored a gathering and potluck for all secular Third Order Fraternities in Southern Oregon. The event was held at Sacred Heart Church in Medford. We were joined by Benedictines, Augustinians, Dominicans and Servites as well as several people who were interested in learning more about Third Orders. After food and fellowship, each Order gave an informal presentation of their particular charism and practice. Display tables were available to help share information. The turn out was above our expectations and we are looking forward to hosting more gatherings in the near future.
