Our Charism

"Of the plenitude of the charism, one element attracted her above all else: the burning veneration of St. Francis for the mystery of the Holy Eucharist. That is why Blessed Maria Theresia called her congregation not only the Sisters of St. Francis, but the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, thus distinguishing them from all other Franciscan sisterhoods. Adoration is not merely a pious exercise. In the hours of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, the Sisters are to gain the strength to make their entire life and all their actions a ceaseless adoration. Whoever adores subjects himself completely to God and places himself unconditionally at His disposal."

After the example of St. Francis...



...and our foundress, Mother Maria Theresia



"With Jesus as our model, it will not be too difficult to walk the path of virtue; our good will is always supported by grace."
~ Blessed Maria Theresia
