Duns Scotus Honor Society

History
Founded in 1935, the Society is named for the Blessed John Duns Scotus, a Franciscan scholar and champion of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception.

It was Scotus’ explanation of this belief that Pope Pius IX incorporated into the dogma proclaimed in 1854. The Franciscan Order was dedicated to Mary under the title by its Founder, St. Francis of Assisi, in 1209. It celebrates on its calendar the Feast of Mary, Queen of the Franciscan Order, on December 15, the Octave of the Immaculate Conception.
 
Election to membership in the Society is based on high scholastic standing, participation in extracurricular activities, evidence of loyalty to the ideals of St. Francis College and demonstration of a true Franciscan spirit.
 
Duns Scotus Honor Society Pledge
Realizing the aims of Duns Scotus and the responsibility of membership in a society under his protection, we will forever hold close the attributes linked with the name of our Patron. In service, scholarship, and individual character, we will assume as our way of life, in church and in the state, the ideals evidenced in his life, namely: clarity of vision, innocence of mind, strictness of responsibility, and service to God.
