Following our foundress, Mother Maria Hyacintha Zechner, the foundation of our consecrated lives is to be totally Franciscan. This is our identity. It takes a new “yes” every day to try to live in the spirit of St. Francis as beloved daughters of God and it takes a lifetime.
As consecrated women religious, we have ministered in education and evangelization according to the needs of the times for 300 years. Education in its purest form means “to mold” and “to lead out”.
In this light, we want to follow Jesus in the spirit of St. Francis and bring His Light to every person we encounter. We want to be the Face of Christ to people all around us. We want to become the Gospel.
