About Us

Our Franciscan ministry is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia who are often remembered in the Portland area as the “Palatine Hill Franciscans.” When the congregation closed the Franciscan Renewal Center on Palatine Hill in 2000, several of the sisters remained committed to finding another home in the area to minister to the spiritual needs of the people in the greater Portland area. 2013 brought the ministry to the current location which is a historic residence that was home for two orders of religious women for over 100 years.

 

MISSION STATEMENT:  Franciscan Spiritual Ministries is a ministry sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia.  Rooted in Gospel values and in the prophetic spirit of Francis and Clare, we seek to provide environments, experiences, and resources which enable persons to meet God in both stillness and activity.  With hospitality, simplicity, and joy, we welcome all as brother and sister.

VISION STATEMENT:  In the Franciscan tradition, we will share/create a place of simple beauty and hospitality that will support and deepen the contemplative spirit.

 

An ecumenical space to renew one's spirit, see with new eyes, learn, connect, find peace, quiet, and rest.
