In word and witness our ministries announce the
evangelical message of peace and penitence.
As Franciscan women in ministry we commit ourselves to the challenge of being messengers of peace by:
- fostering gentleness and reconciliation as a critique of oppression and violence
- establishing loving, prayerful and welcoming Christian communities
- serving the economically poor either directly or indirectly
- supporting the advancement of human rights and the elimination of the exploitation of the poor
- living a simple lifestyle so that corporately we first witness to solidarity with the poor
- bringing the qualities and gifts of women to the life of the Church and world.
