The Franciscan Sisters of the Poor are an international/multi-cultural congregation founded in 1845 by Blessed Frances Schervier in Aachen, Germany. We minister to people in  Brazil, Italy, Senegal, the Philippines and the United States. We are a Congregation committed to healing -- spiritually, personally, and socially. As religious women in the Roman Catholic Church, the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor follow a Gospel way of life through public vows of consecrated celibacy, poverty and obedience in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi and Blessed Frances Schervier, foundress of the Congregation. 

  • In carrying out the mission of Jesus, Blessed Frances Schervier saw Christ in the poor and desired to heal His wounds: that is at the very core of being a Franciscan Sister of the Poor. The Franciscan Sisters of the Poor offer their talents and resources entirely to God for the creative healing of women and men in need.  
  • In keeping with our Foundress' commitment to the disenfranchised, we have a special place in our hearts for those who have been victimized by human trafficking today. click here
