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.

National Black Sisters Conference Statement on the murder of Tyre Nichols

We join the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) and stand in solidarity with the National Black Sisters’ Conference and their recent statement demanding justice for Tyre Nichols and all victims of police brutality. As Franciscans called to justice and peace, we commit ourselves to support and listen to the Black community who is disproportionately experiencing this deadly injustice.
