Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius
(SS. C.M.) The Sisters of Saints Cyril and
Methodius were founded in 1909 in
Scranton, PA. Our spirituality is Christ-centered and Mary-modeled and flows
from our motto, “Thy Kingdom Come.” We are a
presence of Christ in the world through our vowed
communal life, our spirit of prayerfulness and
simplicity, and our joy in the service of the Kingdom.
We live out our call and charism by witnessing to,
proclaiming, and building God’s Kingdom, dedicating
our prayer and ministry to: evangelization, education,
elder care, and ecumenism. We are based in the U.S.,
serving in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, New York,
Texas, and South Carolina. If you feel God may be
calling you to a lifetime of service, or simply have
questions about consecrated life, please contact Sr.

Sisters of St. Francis (collaborative) Third Order
Regular Women is a collaboration of Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY; Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual
Adoration; Sisters of St. Francis, Dubuque, Iowa; Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate; Sisters of St.
Francis of Philadelphia; and Franciscan Sisters of the
Sacred Heart. As Franciscans, relationship with God,
each other, and all of creation is foundational to who
we are. T.O.R. Franciscans have four additional values:
Continuous Conversion, Contemplation, Poverty, and
Humility. We strive to live these through the evangelical vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience while
living in community. Every congregation has its own
history and charism, but we hold much in common.
We live and minister around the United States and
across the world. Each congregation was founded in
a specific time and place to meet the identified needs
of the people of God. Over time we adjusted ministries
and moved to new places in order to continue to meet
the growing and changing needs of God´s people.

our retreatants recently about our campus in Tiffin,
Ohio. We are committed to listening and responding

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.

rounded by beauty on our campus in Tiffin, Ohio,
