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.
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.
Season of Creation
Creation is crying out to us all. In just the past few months we’ve witnessed unprecedented wildfires in Canada, floods in the northeast United States, and record-breaking heat waves throughout the world. As we approach the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi, this season calls us – and all persons of faith to embrace our role as stewards of the Earth and all God’s creation. The Season of Creation from September 1 – October 4 invites more than 2 billion Christians around the world to come together to renew our relationship with God and all creation, and commit ourselves to go forward in hope to care for our common home. As Franciscans, the Season of Creation is an opportunity to embrace our mission to care for our common home. Each Wednesday in September, we will post a link to our e-newsletter reflections and resources inviting you to join us as we confidently, joyfully, go forward on our Franciscan journey and care for our common home.
