Associates partner with the Sisters of St. Francis in radically living gospel values of active nonviolence and peacemaking. Associates espouse compassion, diversity, equality, and inclusivity as they respond to God’s love.
Associates respond to a desire to embrace the Clinton Franciscan mission. They aspire to understand and embody the mission of active nonviolence and peacemaking by living it more deeply in their daily life. They are nourished by mutual support, fellowship, and relationships shared with the Sisters of St. Francis, Sojourners, and each other. Regular gatherings, common prayer, and Franciscan study enrich their commitment to the mission.

"The inclusive vision of the founding members of the Associate Partnership opened the door for my husband and I to develop a caring, supportive, and spiritual connection with the Sisters of St. Francis as we study, pray, and socialize together."
