Mission Statement

In offering herself to God for poor and suffering humanity, Blessed Frances, in a very deep sense, heeded the words of the Gospel: "The gift you have received, give as a gift." (Matt. 10:7) Following her example, we offer our gifts and talents to those we serve. Our actions become a healing presence as we recognize the dignity of each person..

Description

Founded in 145 by Frances Schervier, The Franciscan Sisters of the Poor are an international order with ministries in five countries: Brazil, Italy, Phillipines, Senegal, and the United States. The Sissters and the minisries that they sponsor have a special reverence for the vulnerable of society ministering to others and working towards alleviating needs of those living in poverty.

Following Blessed Frances example, we offer our gifts and talents to those we serve. Our actions become a healing presence as we recognize the dignity of each person through our core values of compassion, collaboration, service and spirituality.
