LIVING THE GOSPEL VALUES THROUGH A FRANCISCAN LENS
Are you drawn to the Franciscan way of life? Do you wonder what it would be like to be a Wheaton Franciscan Sister? Do you have the passion and desire to live simply and serve humbly?
As canonically vowed women religious we live the Gospel values through a Franciscan lens. We live a life of contemplation and action, seeking always to integrate prayer and ministry. We respect the inherent dignity of all creation and challenge each other to deepen our Spirit-filled life. Living our particular charism, we are called to respond to the needs of the times. Through public profession of the canonical vows of poverty, obedience and chastity we consecrate our lives to God, the church, and to one another.
Contemplation and Action
In the spirit of Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi and Mother Clara Pfaender, we are called to be women of prayer and action. Letting the spirit of prayer permeate the whole of our lives, we seek an attitude of awareness and presence which helps free the heart to be completely available and open to God working through us.
