As Sisters of St. Francis, we embrace the Gospel way of life. We accept the challenge Jesus first gave Francis of Assisi, “Go, rebuild my Church.” Under the patronage of Mary Immaculate, we open ourselves to the Spirit of God at work within us. Following the example of our foundress, Mother Alfred Moes, we are women religious who take risks, assume new tasks and devote new energies as we seek out those in need and share our lives with them.
We have entered our 153rd year and look forward to our unfolding history. We continue to serve where God sends us and hold fast to the words, “Where one of us is, all of us are.”

Join us for our Afternoon Tea on April 28, 2019. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Please call the Mission Advancement Office for more information at (815) 725-8735 x116.
Community and Prayer are two things that are essential in our lives. As Franciscan women, we pray “always and everywhere.” While the Eucharist remains central to our lives, prayer enriches us in a variety of forms, both communally and individually. Click the title or icon above for more information.
