As Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, we strive to live the Gospel through relationship. Our community life, our prayer life, and our ministries are about being in relationship with all that God has created. It is in living daily—the Third Order Regular Rule, our constitutions, our Mission Statement, and our Commitment Statement, as well as, the four values of the Third Order Regular—that Gospel relationship comes to life in joy.

If vowed commitment is not for you at this time in your life, here are additional ways to be in relationship with us.

Charism Statement

Our charism as Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia is to live in loving relationship with others, to care for creation, and to see all as a reflection of God’s love.
