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 Catholic vowed sisters and covenant companions (lay 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. Clara Pfaender. We are a welcoming community of faith striving to be a blessing in the heart of the world. We invite you to join us as seekers – in prayer – in worship – in personal growth – in mission – in community. No matter where you are on your life journey, you are welcome here.
