Men and women, married and single, of all ages and faith, who choose
to share in the life and mission of the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor.
Associates express this mission through partnering with the Sisters to
deliver care to the poor and needy with compassion and love: each
according to his or her gifts. They join together in community for
celebrations, prayers, meetings and retreat days. Associates chose to
live out their baptismal commitment by sharing in the Sister's charism
and mission. We are an international congregation and have
Associates in Brazil, Italy, Senegal and the United States. Some serve
directly with the Sisters in ministry, while others carry our healing
charism into the world in a variety of ways.
