Tertiary Sisters of St. Francis Responding to the Signs and Needs of the Time
During the 22nd General Chapter in the Motherhouse in Brixen - North Italy, a new General Leadership Team of the congregation was elected on July 26th 2019. The leadership is elected for a period of six years.
During the feast of Saint Elizabeth, Patron of our Province of Bolivia, the community decided that in each house, each sister would carry out an activity following the examples of Saint Elizabeth.
The passion to care for “Mother Earth,” “Our Common Home,” was reignited in the Tertiary Sisters of Saint Francis by the Holy Father’s urgent and clarion call on people of all faiths, beliefs, religions and occupations to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of “Laudato Si.”
Three tertiary sisters of Saint Francis commit themselves perpetually to the Lord´s service in spite of the challenges.
The ecumenical Season of Creation from September 1 (Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) until October 4 (Feast Day of St. Francis), was themed "Jubilee for the Earth."
