We're an exceptional congregation of women who share the commitment of daily prayer and service.

"I felt the misery and suffering of others, and it seemed to me that I could not love Jesus, or even expect heaven if I were concerned only about myself...not suffering any inconvenience, but simply living in comfort." 

- Venerable Mary Theresa Dudzik, Foundress of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago
