Caring for Our Sisters

Caring for our sisters

Formation of our sisters, especially for young girls who join us immediately after high school, is a continuous process of personal growth. It empowers them to be effective and affirmative ministers of God’s kingdom.  Formation embraces a harmonious development of body, mind and soul.

The heart of our formation process lies in the heritage of our foundresses and in Franciscan spirituality; in extensive study of theology, scripture, spirituality, psychology, missiology, yoga practices, art and music; and in a variety of ministry experiences, especially among physically and psychologically marginalized people.  The entire process of formation at all stages of life enables each member of our community to communicate the meaning of vowed life in today’s world and gives evidence of God’s presence in our midst.
