This tab is for all spiritual assistants in St. Francis Region, friars, sisters, and lay. There are few friars available any more, and St. Francis Region has been preparing lay spiritual assistants since 2005. Five classes have been completed since then, and the sixth will begin in the near future. MORE spiritual assistants are needed in order for every fraternity and forming fraternity in the Region to have one. See more details under the other sub-headings.
