"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.
