We, the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany,
seek to live the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We witness to God's love in the Franciscan tradition
by living as sisters with all creation
and by joyfully serving others,
especially those who are poor or marginalized.
As vowed women, our Mission impels us to:
Live simply in right relationship with God, with others and with creation
Commit to continuing conversion
Deepen our contemplative stance
Proclaim the Reign of God in word and deed
Participate in building a global community based on the principles of justice and compassion
Be instruments of peace, reconciliation and non-violence in our Congregation, Church and world
Care for God's earth and its resources
