Third Order Regular of St. Francis of Penance
Province of the Immaculate Conception

San Pedro Spiritual Development Center is dedicated to providing retreats, resources, and support for the Diocese of Orlando, Florida.Our primary mission is to serve the parishes of the Diocese and their programs as well as their clergy and staff. We also offer our services to other Catholic organizations in good standing and to non-church groups when appropriate.

Since 1980, San Pedro Spiritual Development Center has been administered by the Franciscan Friars, Third Order Regular of St. Francis of Penance, of the Province of the Immaculate Conception.Visit the Staff page to learn more about the friars currently serving at SPSDC.

A frequently asked question is: What does the ‘Third Order Regular’ title mean for the Franciscans? To put it simply, ‘Third Order’ refers to the origins of our world-wide community in the third order that St. Francis founded in his lifetime, an order that encompassed both lay men

and women, as well as diocesan clergy desirous of imitatingFrancis’ Gospel lifestyle. The word ‘Regular’ simply means that we follow an approved Rule of Life, whose foundation is in thewords of St. Francis, himself.

In true Franciscan fashion, friars of the Third Order Regular serve the Church in just about every possible profession from parish priests to teachers, doctors, lawyers, catechists, etc. At. SPSDC the friars principally serve in administration and as retreat directors, spiritual directors, and teachers. To learn more about the friars of the Third Order Regular or the men and women of the Secular Franciscan Order, visit our website.
