Sponsored Ministries

Since the founding of the School Sisters of St. Francis, the community has been motivated by the words of Mother Alexia Hoell to “…read the signs of the times, for they are the will of God for us.” In response to emerging needs, primarily in education and health care, and with a special concern for the poor, the School Sisters of St. Francis have established and continue to sponsor educational, health care, social service, and community development organizations.

Today the U.S. Province sponsors six ministries and co-sponsors three others. Each of these organizations is separately incorporated and under the leadership of a Board of Directors. Our sisters collaborate with the laity as board members, administrators, and staff of each sponsored ministry.
