Along our journey, we have sought to be faithful to Mother Francis’ goal of serving the people of God wherever a need existed. Today our sisters minister in the United States in approximately 15 states as well as in Ireland and Africa. We serve in a variety of ministries and settings: prayer ministry; health care; education at all levels; parish and diocesan ministry; spiritual and pastoral care; service to the elderly, the homeless, the poor, persons with AIDS, and immigrants and refugees; counseling; advocacy; and leadership in national religious organizations.
Interested in touring our Motherhouse?
On the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1 P.M., a short historical presentation and tour of the first floor buildings and chapel is conducted. If you are interested in a tour, please call the receptionist at (610) 459-4125 to provide your name and phone number in case we need to cancel, and the number of family members or friends who will attend.
Your hosts will be Sr. Kathleen Parisi, OSF, and several other sisters who live at the motherhouse. (If Tuesday is not a good day for you, you can contact Sr. Kathleen at (610) 558-7714, OSFF@osfphila.org, to select a date and time for a group tour for at least six people. Tours may be scheduled Monday through Friday.)
