Franciscans for Earth
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.
We challenge ourselves to ecological conversion and to being protectors of God’s creation.
We commit to the Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help 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
