Our Mission | Our Spirituality | Our History | Fact Sheet


The Franciscan Sisters of the Poor have been blessed with the mission to heal the wounds of Christ through love and service, especially to the poor and needy.

We are an international/
multi-cultural religious congregation founded in 1845 by Blessed Frances Schervier in Aachen, Germany. We work primarily in health care, pastoral ministry, and social services in Brazil, Italy, Senegal and the United States.
