A Missionary Congregation of Women Religious

Mass and Prayer

Our Mission

We are women religious who are called by God through our congregation and the church to witness to his continuing Presence in this world.

Relying on the guidance of the Holy Spirit and inspired by the example of    St. Francis and our founders, we strive to imitate Christ.

As missionaries, we are sent to serve Christ in his poor and to bring all people into union with the Father.

Through prayer and ministry, we proclaim the Gospel seeking to fulfill the prayer of Jesus 'that all may be one' (Jn 17:21).  Our Sisters minister around the world, bringing unity and healing to a broken world.  

Real joy is found in the atonement of Jesus Christ and the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi:  peace, reconciliation and unity.  We strive to be instruments of justice and peace wherever we labor in building up the Body of Christ.


Who We Are

Founded in the United States in 1898, we are a branch of the great Franciscan family and a missionary congregation which originated in the Anglican communion and was corporately received into the Roman Catholic Church in 1909.  The congregation received definitive approval as a congregation of Pontifical right on June 13, 1935. (Faithful Love, p. 27)

We minister to the people of God to witness and share the truth about the Kingdom. In Franciscan simplicity and joy, we serve the poor as we strive to empower those who are neglected or oppressed.

We remain open to other ministries that respond to the needs of our times.

We recognize and support our diversity and giftedness. We accomplish this through a shared life of at-one-ment that nurtures and encourages each Sister to live the fullest expression of Christian love.
