As sponsors, we publicly identify with, exert appropriate influence on, and provide various levels of support to these ministries. In so doing, we fulfill our responsibility of stewardship for our heritage, mission, and resources.
Need a techie to demonstrate the details of your new tablet? Or maybe you’re looking for a speaker for a program you’re organizing. In either case, Sr. Julia Keegan might be the person to ask.

Franciscan Values for Sponsored Ministries cogency
Core Gospel values motivate and inform our ministries. Rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus, St. Francis, St. Clare of Assisi, and Mother Francis Bachmann, these values stand as both inspiration and challenge to our sponsored ministries.
Personhood in Community:
The fullness of each person is realized in community and relationships.
The capacity and continual call to develop right relationships with ourselves, God, one another, and creation.
Service motivated by love and compassion; love expressing itself in service.
The care, reverence, and appropriate use of all that has been entrusted to us based on the conviction that all is gift.
Witness to Justice, Peace, and Reconciliation:
Attitudes and actions that flow from our belief in the fundamental relationship that exists among all of creation.
