Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart...

Awakening hope

"We are Sisters of Mercy, 

joyous and poor, 

doing works of neighborly love."


      With deep joy

   we awaken hope

    in our neighbors

through works of love.

“The truly poor in spirit, following the example of the Lord, live in this world as pilgrims and strangers.” 

 (TOR Rule Ch. VI-22)


Like Francis and Clare, we journey in the footprints of Jesus through simple, Gospel living...

  • gathering in fraternitas (community) with Jesus as our brother
  • being a welcoming and joyful presence
  • placing our incompleteness in God's transforming heart
  • embracing diversity in our life and ministries
  • furthering the new reign of God
