Living the Gospel Life through Prayer and Community
Through loving presence and service we foster personal and community growth as we respond to the needs of the church and the times.
We are a community of vowed women (Sisters) and covenant (associate) women and men, whose mission is to live the Gospel following the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, and our foundress Mother M.
