Sr Rose from United States says: "I firmly believe there is an importance to the witness of a person living a celibate life in community totally given to God and God's people. 

It is not so much what we do as Franciscans but it is the whole hearted commitment to our spiritual lives and to His people.  Rooted in God, we try to live the Gospel and bring and receive God's love and compassion to and from those to whom we minister."
