The Mission of the Franciscans with American and Brazilian Sisters

is to ignite a spirit of inclusivity in the heart

of each member of our Global Franciscan family and beyond.





In order to accomplish the mission of FABS we wish to:

  • build on the work and the connections that FABS has already begun

  • strenghten our bonds through intercultural diversity

  • honor the Franciscan charism of continual conversion

  • keep the TOR Rule focus

  • insure that feedback and/or interaction continue when administrative transition take place within each congregation

  • exchange ideas and be in communication with other Religious Congregations that have American and Brazilian Sisters

  • make FABS an active group that extends beyond itself

FABS is a group of Third Order Franciscan Sisters with sisters in North America and Brazil,

collaborating to bring about greater inter-cultural awareness and acceptance of diversity.
