Vision Statement of the Associates
As Associates of the Sisters of St. Francis, we yield to the Spirit who forms us in the Gospel values of prayer,
simplicity, poverty, charity and justice, as modeled in times past by Francis and Clare, and as lived in modern times
by Mother Alfred Moes and the women who follow her today.
We believe that we are part of a new creation of Associates and vowed members which is coming to birth in
the Church, in the world, and in this particular Congregation.
An Associate is a person, committed to Christ, who feels called to share in the spirituality, mission and vision of the Sisters without becoming a vowed member. To learn more about our Associate Program please contact Darcy Mason, Director of Associates, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
