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.

Community Day 2024

Peace and Every Good! 102 years ago, our Congregation was founded and we began our Franciscan journey guided by Providence to serve persons in need, care for all God’s creation and work for justice and peace. Providentially, our Community Day falls during Catholic Sisters Week (March 8-14.)  We invite you to come and know us better by watching our Community Day 2024 video, which celebrates glimpses of our journey.  

With our Provident God as the Center and Source of our lives, we remain grateful for the strong foundation built by our Sisters who have gone before us, as well as those who encouraged and supported the founding and continued existence of our Congregation.  Blessed by Providence, we have not journeyed alone, and we are grateful to each person whose presence, support, and prayers have been essential to the longevity of our Franciscan mission. Our journey is not over, and we remain grateful for your friendship, support and solidarity as we confidently, joyfully, go forward
