Sisters of St. Francis

Rooted in the Gospel and in the spirit of Francis and Clare, the Sisters of St. Francis live in right relationship with all creation.

In our personal, communal and public lives, the Sisters of St. Francis commit to ongoing conversion as we:

  • deepen our relationship with Mother Earth and Sister Water;
  • stand with persons who are poor;
  • and make peace and practice non-violence.

This is who we are, this is what the global community can expect from us.
