set free the healing energy of Christ

    ASSSOCIATES continuing the mission... 




 Associates are...

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.
