We are Franciscan women religious bound together by a common mission and a common heart.
Our common mission is to be a transforming presence in society. We dedicate our lives to witness the Gospel compassionately and joyfully. We enable and empower others to live with hope and joy. We have a special commitment to care for creation, the first book written by God.
Our common heart calls us into a profound relationship with each other, all God’s people and creation as we live simply and witness to God’s spirit moving in the world.
Through public profession of vows we each commit to ”loving as Jesus Christ loves, to sharing as He shares and to listening to Him in all of reality, so that all creation might be renewed in Him”.
Since our beginnings in St. Louis in 1901 our Sisters have been prayerful women of faith, prophetic vision and courage as we embrace daily conversion of heart.
