Called to Serve
The Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Sisters sponsor a number of healthcare and social service ministries in Louisiana. We are an organization of religious Sisters called to religious vocations, and we operate hospitals, clinics, physician practices, long-term care facilities, outreach clinics and various education programs. Our social service ministries include caring for the homeless, unwed mothers, individuals with HIV, the impoverished and people in prison or adjusting to life after their release. We operate a private college preparatory school as well as a college that prepares nurses, physical therapy assistants and other specialists for careers in healthcare.
The Sisters believe in the call to serve those most in need by extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. As such, we work directly in our healthcare organization. We also provide leadership and governance oversight by serving as members of the Board of Directors.
