The Order of Secular Franciscans at Sacred Heart

The Secular Franciscan Order (O.F.S.) is a branch of the worldwide Franciscan Family. Secular Franciscans are men and women, single and married, as well as diocesan priests and deacons who work, worship and play in the community where they live and desire to live out a Franciscan spirituality in their own milieu.


The Sacred Heart Secular Franciscan Fraternity gathers at 2:00 pm on the fourth Sunday of each month at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (2905 Carson Ave. Indianapolis IN 46203)

The Transitus of St. Francis of Assisi

St Francis died about sunset on Saturday, October 3, 1226. He recited the 141st Psalm, and at the closing words, “Lead my soul out of prison that I may give praise to your name.” his blessed soul passed from earth to heaven.

This event is recalled each year by Franciscans throughout the world.

The Sacred Heart Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order will be sponsoring a Transitus service at Sacred Heart Catholic Church (1530 S Union St. Indianapolis, IN 46225) following the 5:00 PM Mass on Saturday October 3, 2020.
The Mass will be offered for recently deceased Secular Franciscans.

This event will be streamed at Worship aids will be available on the Parish website

Of course, you are welcome to attend in person, however face covering and social distance will be observed.  Unfortunately there will be no fellowship gathering afterward.
