HOME PAGE » Our Charism

         The charism of the School Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis, rooted in the Franciscan penitential tradition of Gospel living, is intimate union with God in the midst of apostolic service. In the spirit of Franciscan poverty expressed in the simplicity and humble dedication of our communal life, we minister through Christian formation, education and development of the total person. Responding to the signs of the times and to the needs of the Church, we, as faithful servants of the church, joyfully minister to the poor and otherwise needy.
