The Secular Franciscan Order in the United States sponsors a Quinquennial Congress every five years to bring together the Franciscan family from all over the U.S. and even other countries. The exception to the five-year practice is the 2016 Q, which comes four years after the previous Q, so that the 2021 Q would fall on the 100th anniversary of the first Quinquennial Congress. However, that plan changed when COVID-19 concerns forced delaying the "Q" to 2022.
The 2022 "Q" Planning Committee includes Mary Bittner, OFS; Br. Bob Brady, OFM; Donna Hollis, OFS; Kim Herndon, OFS; Claudia Kauzlarich, OFS; Jan Parker, OFS; Cathy Roszhart, OFS; Steve Roszhart, OFS; Susan Simeone, OFS; Kathy Taormina, OFS; Tim Taormina, OFS.
The 2016 "Q" Planning Committee includes Coordinator Susan Simeone, OFS; Barb Morgan, OFS; Kate Kleinert, OFS; Judy Haupt, OFS, and Kathryn Wohnoutka, OFS.
