    "What you hold, may you always hold, What you do, may you always do and never abandon."

                                   Clare of Assisi. 


    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.
