The Ecumenical/Interfaith Network (OFS-USA-EIC) was formed in 1997 by the National Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order. Its mission is “to educate and to raise the awareness of our Franciscan sisters and brothers in the United States to the ecumenical and interfaith movements in the Church. Paying particular attention to strengthening our collaboration with non-Eastern and Latin Rite Catholic secular Franciscans through our participation in the Joint Committee on Franciscan Unity.” (Quoted from the OFS-USA-EIC website.)
