United States

Since the community’s founding in 1874, the School Sisters of St. Francis have responded to the call of the Church in the United States. Originally ministering as educators in parish schools, today the community continues its commitment to meet the needs of the times by witnessing “to the Good News of Jesus and the presence of the reign of God as we enter into the lives and needs of people, especially the poor.”

Through the wide range of ministries we undertake in cities and towns from coast to coast, the School Sisters of St. Francis honor our community’s Franciscan heritage at the same time that we touch the lives and hearts of new generations.
