“Life is a mission”! And our response can only be: “Here am I Lord! Send me”! (cf. Is 6:8)

What then is the mission of a Franciscan Hospitaller Sister? 

To be in the Church and in the world, the presence of Christ who welcomes and serves everyone, especially those who are most in need.

  • Our mission of hospitality is a continuation of the action of St. Francis of Assisi who reached out to the lepers to accept them.
  • Our mission of hospitality is an extension of the compassionate deeds of Father Beirão, who, inspired by his missionary zeal, sought out those in need wherever he encountered them.
  • Our mission of hospitality reflects the wisdom encapsulated in Sister Maria Clara’s words: “Treat everyone well.”
