Our Charism

To Serve the Lord Jesus Christ,
the Author of Life, with Joyful Simplicity
in the Spirit of Saint Francis of Assisi


Each Daughter, with graces given her by the Holy Spirit shall put forth this charism in the spirit of our Seraphic Father, Saint Francis. In union with the Church, we will witness to the Gospel of Life  by being living examples of the love of Christ for our neighbors.


It does not take grand gestures to accomplish this. But rather, through our daily example, prayers, and acts of kindness we will witness Christ's love to our world. We shall seek to offer hope to those who need it most and help those who need it now.

To serve Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Author of Life, with joyful simplicity, upholding the dignity of every human person from the moment of conception until natural death in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi.
