Franciscan Sisters of St. JosephCalled by God into the Fraternity of Francis, we live in Simplicity, Servanthood, and Joy, renewing the spirit of Mother Colette Hilbert, "In all things Charity."
We continue to celebrate the Easter Season remembering the New Life Jesus calls us to. What a perfect time to celebrate Earth Day – a day dedicated to caring for God’s wonderful gift of creation.

Our Mission & Vision
Helping to connect people to faith
We, the Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph,
witness the Gospel in joy and peace,
committed to prayer, service, and care for all creation.
from Laudato Si: Care for Our Common Home
Care for Our Common Home
"If you want peace, care for creation."
Since living at St. Francis Park the Sisters have offered an annual prayer service around the Peace Pole in front of our home. This picture is from 2011 when we dedicated the plague next to the Peace Pole to Sr. Claire Ann Torla, FSSJ who had a love of gardening and creation. Sr. Claire Ann was a peaceful presence to us all.
