We're an exceptional congregation of women that share the commitment of daily prayer and serving the needy along with the joys and sorrows of life in community. We do this by ministering in the fields of senior housing, continuing care retirement communities, pastoral care, education and social services. Our life manifests the Franciscan spirit of prayer, poverty, simplicity, joy and ongoing conversion. Please take a few minutes to explore our website, our community, our ministry...

November 2nd Scripture Reflection
On the second of November each year, whether on a Sunday or a weekday, we observe the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed or All Souls Day. On All Souls Days our thoughts and prayers especially turn to the people who have died, particularly those who have passed in the last year, each of whom has been somehow part of the fabric of our lives and deserves our solidarity with them in prayer.

The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago is a congregation of Catholic women living the Gospel life and dedicated to serving others for more than 114 years. We serve the people of God through works prompted by our charism: care for children, the sick, the infirm, and the elderly; and pastoral and social services.

The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago have adapted to the changing needs of society and expanded and refocused its ministry to respond to the changing needs of those served. The ability and need to serve continues to evolve and we are responding with new ministries in the areas of affordable housing, home health, hospice, and various community benefit services.

Guided by its Franciscan spirit, The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago celebrate life and are committed to joyful, compassionate service.
