The Sisters of St. Francis Commitment Statement
We recommit ourselves to “rebuilding the Church” by living the passion of the Gospel in the
discerning spirit of our Franciscan charism and tradition.
We are willing to take the necessary risks to be a healing, compassionate presence in our violent world
especially with women, children, and those who have no voice.
We desire to reflect this commitment in our dialogue with the entire Church, in our own governing structures,
and in our relationship with one another as sister.
