Founded in 1981 by five Franciscan sisters, we are a community devoted to building the Catholic community through education and apostolic works, spreading Christ’s love, peace and joy. We teach in all areas of Catholic education.

Although a small group, we grow in love for one another through genuine community life according to the directives of Vatican II, while embracing the Church’s magisterium in total fidelity to the Holy Father and his plan for the new evangelization of the Church and society. We live simple Franciscan lives following the Gospel counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience through a joyous common life and corporate commitments.

Women 21 to 35 years of age, who possess a pioneering spirit, are committed to genuine Catholic culture, and willing to rely on Divine Providence are encouraged to contact us.
