Congregational Statement on the Death Penalty


We, the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart, affirm our stance against the death penalty made in 2000. As followers of Jesus and Francis of Assisi, we hold the dignity of each person as sacred. Every person is the image of God and has the right to the breath of life.


  • We are against both federal and state executions.
  • We believe in the power of restorative justice.
  • We work in harmony with organizations holding parallel views.
  • We pray for peace first in our hearts and for our world.

“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...

  • discerning God's dream for us personally and communally
  • 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
