About Our Life

We praise, love and serve God in the spirit of St. Francis: Simplicity and Humility. This we do in our different apostolic and missionary work of teaching, nursing (even the aged), social work, domestic work, retreats, spiritual direction and administration.

This means that our mission around the world is with the poor in their many faces and loving and respecting creation and every person.

Our Charism originates from Francis who was a rich young man and was called by God in difficult times with a message from the Cross
Say the Rosary in this manner: Recite 1 Our Father, and 2 Hail Mary's.
Here in the Logo we find a description of all the the different colours and what they resemble.
In 1932, the 7th Day of September, our first six Sisters arrived in this country from Germany.
