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.
40 Days of Prayer: Day 38
On this Maundy Thursday, our 38th day of prayer reflection during Lent, please join us as we pray for those experiencing a crisis of faith – may the light of Christ guide them out of the darkness of doubt and confusion.
|40 Days of Prayer and Reflection|
|Lent is a welcome time for many Christians when we open our hearts to Christ and prepare ourselves to go forward in faith through prayer, reflection and living more simply. Prayer is also a vital part of our Sisters’ spiritual lives, ministry, and mission. Franciscan Prayer is contemplative – opening one’s heart and mind to the presence of God directly and in all creation. As part of our Lenten journey, prayer strengthens our faith and moves us to manifest God’s extravagant love in our own lives. This Lenten season, we invite you to join us in 40 Days of Prayer. We pray that your Lenten journey blesses you with spiritual clarity and a deeper understanding of the love of Christ. May you go forward from this prayerful experience as a witness to God’s extravagant love.|
