Our sisters minister at all levels in education and religious education; health care; care of the elderly, dying and homeless; pastoral care; social services; justice education; the missions; retreat and prayer ministry; immigration; the environment and others as needs arise. We serve in 12 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as well as in Kenya and Peru.

The congregation also supports ministries created under the auspices of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities.

As a congregation we have responded to the needs of the church beyond the United States. Sisters currently minister in Timau, Kenya, East Africa and in Lima, Peru.

For the Sisters of St. Francis there is no end or retirement from the ministry of prayer. It is a ministry taken seriously and most especially by sisters retired from active ministry.
