Our Mission

The Franciscan charism has always been one committed to peace, hospitality, and regard for the poor and oppressed. The heart of St. Francis was turned toward all of creation and toward living with justice and care. At our time in history, we are surrounded by critical and massive injustices: devastation of natural resources, global warming, human trafficking, racism, pollution.

How can we be part of healing the crises of today?  Bluestem Earth Festival 2021: Living with Justice and Care is an effort of the Joliet Franciscan Sisters and Associates offering education and ideas for action.
