Our congregational spirituality flows from the gift of Baptism through which we share the life and mission of Jesus and from profession of vows through which we deepen our baptismal gift according to the founding charism and sound traditions of our congregation.

It is rooted in the Gospel as reflected in the lives of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi and Mother Xavier.

It is through the Gospel values that we are called to on-going conversion and simple living.

It is nourished by Scripture, Church teaching and tradition, Franciscan sourc­es, community history, and by openness to the presence of God in all people and creation.

It is incarnated in each of us and is expressed in diverse ways.

Following the Franciscan tradition, our spirituality is shaped by and ex­pressed in contemplation and action.
