You may choose to pursue a relationship with the Sisters of St. Francis as a companion. Companions share in the spirit and mission of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia through prayer, faith, or ministry. Like all Christians, Franciscan companions are called through baptism to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ as sister and brother with the entire human family and with all of creation.
We invite you—as a companion—to support your own call as well as the spirit and mission of the sisters by praying daily the companion’s prayer. You are encouraged to pray in whatever way God has called you for the congregation and for all companions. You will be remembered at the daily Eucharistic Liturgy at the motherhouse.
Companions are encouraged to spread the good news of the Gospel through their life and, if able, through some type of activity or volunteer service. For some companions support may mean praying for the sisters in these ministries. For others an opportunity to support the ministries by donations of goods or service may present itself.
