About our life
We are an Order of Saint Francis, we are a Roman Catholic congregation of religious women of the Third Order of St. Francis of Assisi. Our congregation was established in a place called Siessen in Germany. That is why we are also called The Franciscan Sisters of Siessen. We dedicate ourselves to living joyfully through the Franciscan values of simplicity, poverty, and obedience.
This means that our mission around the world is with the poor in their many faces and loving and respecting creation any every person.Many of our communities are among the poor in order to follow in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi.
We love the adventure with God, which makes our life so exciting. Curious? The greatest and most precious gift ever on earth: Jesus Christ
“Rejoice with us Franciscan Sisters of Siessen from South Africa. We praise, love and serve God in the spirit of St. Francis: Simplicity and Humility."
“Our Holy Order must be everywhere, poor and small, in the spirit of its Founder, our Seraphic Father Saint Francis. “
