Who is an Associate?
Our Associates are Christian men and women who desire to more clearly identify with the charism of the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart. (See our program brochure.)
With joy and compassionwe live the Gospelin the spirit of Francis and Clarethrough prayerand works of neighborly love.
In addition to supporting each other in prayer, Associates and Sisters meet regularly for faith sharing in the areas in which they live. Some Associates have committed to carrying out the “works of neighborly love” by helping in the ministries of the Sisters, by continuing in their own jobs, or doing volunteer work in the spirit of Francis and Clare
We presently have 90 Associates across the United States. If you feel called to support and be supported in prayer, to be a part of a faith sharing group and/or to be involved in spreading the Gospel message in the spirit of St. Francis, perhaps you are being called to be an Associate of the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart. There are no legal or financial obligations in this commitment. We welcome men and women wishing to identify with our mission, vision, goals and values.
