No it is not necessary to move. However in Australia, which is the size of Europe distance is a tremendous reality. Quite a number of Seculars have had to move along way from any fraternity group meeting. We call them “Isolated Seculars” this does not stop them from living their commitment to a Secular Franciscan way of life. Today with phone and email some of the distance can be eased and with communication, isolated Seculars try to attend the yearly Regional Retreat that the members of the Secular Franciscan Order have.
