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.

Advent Blessings: HOPE

On this first Sunday of Advent, we reflect on HOPE. Not simply a wish or blind optimism, our hope is firmly rooted in our trust in God’s Providence. We go forward with hope because God is with us.  The expectant hope of advent invites us to make more room in lives and hearts for Christ.  The extraordinary love that fills this space calls us to compassion, forgiveness, and mercy.  

As we continue to contemplate hope, please join us in prayer seeking faith and guidance as we make more room for Christ in our lives and hearts. Blessings on your continued Advent journey.
