Peace and Every Good

“We are a congregation of active women religious who have chosen to live the Gospel simply and plainly in the footsteps of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi. Our Sisters invite you to explore these pages and learn more about us, how we live, what we believe, and how we dedicate our lives to God through serving God’s Church and God’s people.”

-Sister Joanne Brazinski, OSF


INSPIRED by Francis of Assisi to follow Jesus Christ in total responsiveness to the Providence of God. WE EMBRACE the evangelical life in community, striving to live the poverty of Jesus Christ and to proclaim peace in the joy of the Spirit.

Gun Violence (1)

Please join us as we continue to pray for victims and survivors of the recent mass shootings in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH. We also remember loved ones, first responders, medical professionals and others working to save lives and heal a traumatized community. May God grant you all peace, strength and comfort.

As Franciscan Sisters, God calls us to be instruments of Peace and act in response to the increasing frequency of high profile incidents of gun violence, as well as the many other incidents that don’t make the news, including domestic violence and suicide. As we continue to pray for victims and survivors, we stand with other Catholic Sisters to urge our elected leaders to work together, take a comprehensive look at the causes of gun violence, and take effective action to end gun violence.
