Our Founders

The Sisters of St. Francis Oldenburg, Indiana

Mission Statement of the Sisters of St. Francis Oldenburg, Indiana:

"We, the Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis, Oldenburg, are women of prayer, committed to the Gospel values as lived by St. Francis and Mother Theresa Hackelmeier. From our life in community we are sent to extend the mission of Jesus through our presence and service. Enlivened by a spirit of justice, reconciliation and peace, we collaborate with others in responding to the needs of the world."

We fulfill these words by being women of prayer in the ministries we do and the places where we are present. Since Vatican II opened the doors to the many needs of the world, we minister in education, parish ministry, social service, healthcare and social justice.

Directional Statement, Sisters of St. Francis, 2012-18

Through contemplation we embrace anew the prophetic message of Jesus, impelling us to hope-filled, compassionate presence and collaborative, transformative action impacting our universe.
