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.

Welcome

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. Clara Pfaender. We are a welcoming community of faith striving together to be instruments of peace, hope and justice in our world today.  We invite you to join us as seekers – in prayer – in worship – in personal growth – in mission – in community.
