Sisters of St. Francis (Tiffin Franciscans),
Tiffin, OH “This is a powerful place,” said one
of our retreatants recently about our campus
in Tiffin, Ohio. We are committed to listening
and responding to God’s call for us as a community. Indeed, prayer, service and community
have been our foundation since 1869, when Fr.
Joseph Bihn and Mother Elizabeth Schaefer set
out to help orphans and the elderly poor after
the Civil War. Peacemaking, concern for the
poor, contemplation/action and care of creation
are the directions we follow as we walk through
the world, doing what we can to answer God’s
call. Today, we serve in Mexico and in several
states in the U.S. We are forward looking and
inclusive. We are surrounded by beauty on our
campus in Tiffin, Ohio, which is home to our
Motherhouse, Franciscan Earth Literacy Center,
St. Francis Spirituality Center and St. Francis
Senior Ministries. Please contact vocations@
tiffinfranciscans.org or (419) 447-0435. Visit
www.sfctiffin.org and find us on Facebook @
Tiffin Franciscans and on Twitter TiffinSisters.

Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia
(O.S.F.) Gospel Women Making a Difference!
Will you join us in following Jesus Christ? We
live the traditional Franciscan Third Order values
of contemplation, poverty, humility, and continu-
ous conversion through the evangelical vows of
poverty, chastity, and obedience. Community
life, prayer and ministry support and express
our relationships with God, others, creation, and
self. We choose to take the necessary risks to be
a compassionate presence in our violent world—
especially with women; children; those who
have no voice; and those who are economically
poor, marginalized, and oppressed. Our varied
ministries allow us to foster right relationships
in our Church and promote peace in society in
the United States and beyond. Are you interested?

Sr. Christine Still (National), Sr. Christopher
