Charism

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.
