In 1869, five young Catholic women in rural Wisconsin responded to God’s call, inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi’s Gospel way of life.

Today, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity strive to live the Gospel in simplicity, built on faith in a loving God; joyful acceptance of poverty, love for the Church, and selfless dedication to the service of others in Arizona, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, and Wisconsin, as well as Rome serving at the dicastery, the General Secretariat for the Synod of Bishops. Together they serve in rewarding roles in Catholic education, Catholic healthcare, and in other ministries in the Church.

The world needs you. God calls you. We invite you…with other Catholic women to our Vocation Discernment Retreats or invite us to meet you where you are.

“El mundo te necesita. Dios te llama. Te invitamos… con otras mujeres católicas a nuestros Retiros de Discernimiento Vocacional o invita nos a encontrar contigo donde estés ”.
