"Preach the gospel always, and when necessary, use words." - St Francis of Assisi

Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth

The Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth is a Catholic Franciscan community of women religious who are apostolic contemplatives.

"May the power of your love, O Lord,

fiery and sweet as honey, wean my heart from all that is under heaven,

so that I may die for love of Your love,

You who were so good to die for love of my love."

-Prayer taught to St. Clare by St. Francis

"In their life and ministry the Sisters strive to live the spirituality of Nazareth so dear to the heart of St. Francis.  It was in Nazareth that Jesus lived his hidden life, where Our Lady received her call and it was the place that Jesus was identified with at the cross."

- Sisters' Constitutions #3

"I have told you this that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete... love one another as I have loved you."

- John 15:11-12

  Following the poor, humble life of the Poverello of Assisi, St. Francis, and in union with the spirit of the Capuchin branch of the Franciscan order, the sisters strive to live a joyful, simple lifestyle. So, "poor in fact but rich in spirit", they entrust themselves to Divine Providence.
