Around 200 people came together Saturday, Nov. 9, at St. Francis Woods in Frankfort to celebrate 100 years of secular Franciscan life in the United States.

Members of about 22 Franciscan fraternities and other interested guests in the Mother Cabrini Region began the day with a mass before taking part in discussions, reflection and food and listening to two dynamic speakers.

“Deep within I will plant my law, not on stone but within your heart,” the Rev. Ed Shea said as he addressed the crowd.
