The Bernardine Franciscan Sisters have answered God’s call for more than one hundred years. Following in the footsteps of Francis and Clare of Assisi, Bernardine of Siena, Angelina of Montegiove and Mother Veronica Grzedowska of Poland, we continue our mission – to embrace the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our story is one of blessings and Divine Providence intertwined with a rich history founded in active lay ministry in the 15th century, transformed by cloister life for over 400 hundred years, and brought to a new life in the United States in the latter part of the 19th century.

In a new millennium, we stand at historic crossroads, witnessing to humankind’s awesome achievements and God’s marvelous works. We know that there isn’t a clear way mapped out for the future. Like our foundress, who took her first footsteps of hopes and dreams on the soil of the United States, we too, walk into the future trusting in Divine Providence and knowing God’s eternal goodness will sustain our efforts. We respond to new challenges and dare to make a difference as we journey with our brothers and sisters – following the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
