Father Edward Francis Daems, who was inspired to found our Community, desired that we live simply, humbly, and joyfully. He believed that the rule of St. Francis would be most appropriate for us.
St. Francis embraced four basic values for himself and his followers:
Cross, Word and Eucharist
Three mysteries of our faith support us in our efforts to make these four Franciscan values a reality in our day-to-day living. These are the mysteries of the Cross of Jesus Christ, the Word of God as found in Sacred Scripture, and the gift of Christ's own Body and Blood in the Eucharist.
Rooted in the Cross, Word, and Eucharist ... compassionately responding through prayer, presence, and hospitality.
