Employment Opportunities

Are you ready to partner in mission?

FSPA is dedicated to relationship-centered care and service. For our staff—who we call our partners in mission—this means quality time working with sisters and quality time advancing our Franciscan mission. We are a socially responsible organization—members of the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility—and offer a PTO plan that starts immediately, 403(b) match, tuition assistance and a wellness program, including access to an Employee Assistance Center and discounted spirituality center programming.

FSPA is an employer committed to a diverse and inclusive work environment. We strongly encourage applications from anyone who would add richness to our community.

Our core values:


We honor one another and all creation, recognizing all are gifts of God.


We care for one another and serve others with generosity, love and kindness.


We empower the spirit of teamwork to strengthen relationships in support of mission and ministry.


We strive to do what is right and best for sisters and staff, think of others, and work to be people of goodness, humility and honor.


We joyfully welcome all as an image of the divine. There are no strangers here.


We bravely cultivate a path of personal
and communal growth.
