Who We Are


Who Are the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia?


We are a congregation of approximately 450 Catholic women religious who:

  • choose a Gospel way of life lived in community
  • are dedicated to serving others, especially those who are economically poor, marginal, and oppressed
  • minister in the United States in approximately 24 states as well as Europe and Africa
  • serve in a variety of ministries and settings
  • we follow the values of the Third Order Regular Franciscans


"We are willing to take the necessary risks to be a healing, compassionate presence in our violent world, especially with women, children, and those who have no voice."
