Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration Mission and Vision

Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

We are a community of vowed Franciscan women centered in Eucharist, committed to be loving presence through prayer, witness and service.

Unity in Diversity

True to our Franciscan Calling, we commit ourselves to building Christ's Kingdom of justice and peace. We continue our efforts to preserve and nurture God's creation, to increase social and global consciousness, to educate ourselves to political awareness, and to encourage action to effect change where necessary. - Unity in Diversity #40

A Revolution of Goodness

We proclaim A Revolution of Goodness by committing to action in the following areas:

We build bridges of relationships that stretch us to be people of encounter who stand with all suffering in our Earth Community.

Gospel Living
We are freed through joyful Gospel Living to be transformed in love and goodness for community and mission.

Unity in Diversity
We celebrate authentically unity in diversity by challenging ourselves to unveil our white privilege.

The provocative movements listed above represent much of our work during A Revolution of Goodness and FSPA Chapter of Affairs, both held in June 2018.


As Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration have moved together with others in many collaborative efforts, our mission and values—derived from our Franciscan and Catholic heritage—have been extended to others. Our network extends from the neighborhood that surrounds our motherhouse throughout the United States and across the ocean to Bavaria and Africa. Today, we collaborate with partners including Leadership Conference of Women Religious, North American Conference of Associates and Religious, Franciscan Federation, Washburn Neighborhood ... just to name a few. Our collaborations continue in the areas of justice and peace and ecospirituality.

Modern Lives. Sacred Traditions.
