Franciscan Sisters Of Christian Charity

Franciscan Sisters: Called to be, called to serve:

In 1869, five young Catholic women in rural Wisconsin responded to God’s call. They discerned that they should share their daily lives together in religious community. St. Francis of Assisi’s Gospel way of life inspired them. Their love for the Catholic Church and selfless dedication to the service of others guided them.

Today, we Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity whole-heartedly live our vocation in the loving community spirit of our foundresses. We strive to live the Gospel in simplicity, built on faith in a loving God; joyful acceptance of poverty, love for the Church, and selfless dedication to the service of others.

Can you really comprehend what feelings passed through our hearts when we were clothed in the religious garments and thus consecrated to God after three and one-half years as candidates?…As we were now members of a community we had to take the yoke of Christ on our shoulders, for He says: 'My yoke is sweet and light.'
-Mother Gabriel
