Welcome to the website of the
Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Eucharist

Sisters of St. Francis

"... In all of their works
the love of God and all people shine forth."

— Rule of St. Francis

The Sisters are dedicated to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prayer for priests, and works of mercy. The Franciscan characteristics of contemplation, littleness, humility, poverty and fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church are central to their way of life. Prayer in common, spiritual exercises, intellectual pursuits, manual labor and recreation comprise each day.

Sr. Mary Clare praises God and His creation.

“What attracted me to the Sisters was the ‘littleness’ of the community — not in numbers but in the ‘littleness’ that exuded from their spirit. They were hidden, amidst their active apostolates, in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus. That littleness brought forth great joy.”
