Religious women ministering in the tradition of St. Francis of Assisi.

Rooted in the Gospel, we are sisters to all, serving with reverence, justice and compassion.

We serve by:

  • Caring for those most in need
  • Promoting peace through social justice
  • Advocating for the care of creation

We are sisters to all.

Rooted in the Gospel, we serve with reverence, justice and compassion.

The Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities were officially founded in 2004 when three New York State-based congregations united. In 2007, a Pittsburgh community merged with the Syracuse-based congregation

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

OUR MINISTRIES

Spiritual Direction

Do you want to deepen your relationship with God? Several of our Sisters are certified Spiritual Directors who can help.

Social Justice

God calls on us to be the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves. We educate and advocate for the earth, the trafficked, peace, equality and the immigrant and refugee.

Ministry of Franciscan Presence

This ministry calls us to “live the Gospel” by treating those with whom we live, work, pray and socialize with equal dignity, respect and compassion.

Prayer Ministry

It is said that prayer is how we talk to God. It is our joy to spend time each day in prayer for the intentions we receive.
