Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help

As Catholic Sisters who follow the rule and life of St. Francis of Assisi we believe all is sacred, good and interconnected. We believe creation is God’s continuing revelation and mystery unfolding in our world. We call ourselves Franciscans for Earth. We reject that which does harm to creation and our earth companions. “Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or secondary aspect of our Christian experience.”  Pope Francis  -Care for our Common Home

We challenge ourselves to ecological conversion and to being protectors of God’s creation.

We commit to thFranciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Helpe noble call of caring for creation by educating, collaborating and advocating for:

  • Simplicity of living
  • Grateful contemplation of God’s world
  • Concern for the needs of the poor
  • Protection of the environment

“It is our humble conviction that the divine and the human meet in the slightest detail in the seamless garment of God’s creation, in the last speck of dust of our planet.”

- Pope Francis
