Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis
International Mission Statement (How we see ourselves internationally) of the Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis
We are members of an international, multi-cultural congregation of Franciscan Sisters.
We are committed to live the Gospel in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, our founder Father Christopher Bernsmeyer, OFM, our founding sisters and all those who followed them.
We are committed to live a simple life style in community. We find challenge in the values of the Third Order Regular Rule: conversion, contemplation, poverty and humility.
We are dedicated to a common mission that brings Christ's healing presence to humanity and supports creative ways of responding to the sick, poor and needy.
We witness our Franciscan spirituality by reverencing all creation, living and promoting peace and justice and respecting the dignity of all people.
