          Silence leads us to our own centre where we meet our true selves. It is in this depth that we open ourselves to the encounter with God.  A life nurtured by silence changes us.  
    (S. Marija Brizar)

    We are a Franciscan community of sisters who, together with our associates, seek ongoing conversion of heart. We embrace the mystery of the cross as we live gospel values. Faithful to the spirit of our founders we respond to the needs of the time with mercy and compassion while creating possibilities for the future.
