Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were called to serve in Arizona in 1931. Since then our ministry has expanded beyond education. We are blessed to work with a diversity of people: in Catholic schools and parishes, on the Gila River and Tohono O’odham Reservations, missions and diocesan offices.

How do you know God calls you? It is a discernment question many young women are asking. We say “contact us” – for a discernment retreat, to join a vocation event, or simply for a discerning and helpful conversation. See our Vocation Events page for the latest, and our contact page for the best way to reach us.

“At the end of our lives, all that matters is how we served our God and others, faithful to our call, and how well we respond generously to the inheritance that has been given to us.” Sr. Leonette Kochan, OSF
