Franciscan Sisters of the Atonement

Church of St. John Baptist
In Franciscan simplicity and joy, we serve the poor, work to enable the neglected and oppressed, respond to the needs of our times, and strive to be instruments of justice and peace.

The Franciscan Sisters of the Atonement are a missionary congregation of women who share life in the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience within a context of community. We share common apostolic goals, remembering our Foundress Lurana White who said, "Let us have many missions small and poor, but rich in love of God, one another and all people."

St Francis We are involved in religious education, social welfare and community development programs, health care, pastoral, hospital and prison ministries, home visitation, adult day care, child day care and kindergartens, youth ministry, justice and peace work, and guest and retreat house ministries.

In all of our life and ministry we are devoted to seeking unity of all Godís people in the ecumenical spirit of the Church.

"THAT ALL MAY BE ONE: THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE."
