Service of Christ in his poor,sick and abandoned brothers and sisters.  Poverty,humility and a loving union with God are special signs of our Francisican spirituality.

Apostolic works: 

We engage in apostolic service in hospitals, Nursing Home and mental institutions, as well as in private house and hospice.  We can also teach and readily join parish apostolate.

As Daughters of St. Francis of Assisi, our principal aim is the glory of God and personal holiness. To reach this end, we have dedicated ourselves to a life of prayer, and we witness to the primacy of God through the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience. We have been called to bring good tidings of God's goodness and mercy to all people.  In the spirit of our founder, St. Francis we are committed to serve our poor, sick and abandoned brothers and sisters in a nursing apostolate.

Requirements: necessary physical and mental health 18-30 years of age.
