Consider a Catholic Vocation with Franciscan Sisters

We invite you to view some of the Catholic vocation videos, featuring a diversity of our Franciscan Sisters, some who have served over 50 years, some who have served for 10 or 20 years, some in formation as novices and postulants. You’ll meet some of our sisters ‘in prayerful action’, as well as some of the wonderful people we serve. From students at St. Francis School in Greenwood Mississippi to St. Peter School in Bapchule, Arizona.  From patients, physicians and staff at our health care system in Ohio to young adults at San Xavier Mission. From a Sister serving as a Spiritual Director in Oshkosh, Wisconsin to young women having fun and involved in discernment at Camp Franciscan
