Who are the Bernardine Franciscan Sisters?

Mission Statement

The Bernardine Franciscan Sisters invite men and women to deepen their baptismal call to live the Gospel by sharing in the life and mission of the sisters. The sisters and volunteers strive to be instruments of peace while serving all people, especially the poor and marginalized. In the spirit of St. Francis and Mother Veronica, volunteers commit to compassionate service, global justice, a simple life style and spiritual growth in a faith community. Challenged to mutual transformation, all work together to create a better world.
