The School Sisters of St. Francis community was founded on April 28, 1874. Our sisters began their ministry in parish schools, responding to the call of the Church in the United States.
Today we serve in ten countries and our membership in five provinces stands at nearly 1,000 sisters. Our ministries, past and present, are rooted in Christian and Franciscan values. School Sisters of St. Francis are alive with the call of the Gospel, uniting with others to build a just and peaceful world.
