Our charism is to be a “Eucharistic field” capable of calling forth the joyful dignity of another’s being.
Our charism emboldens us to face prayerfully the following issues as our particular focus in our mission of rebuilding the Church:
The mystery of the human person
Relationship with created matter
The Eucharist, the Real Presence
Our mission is to restore a sense of the sacred, especially the sacredness of human life, in a world that knows the rupture between the sacred and the secular.
Generalate and Motherhouse
As the motherhouse and headquarters of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist, the Meriden center is the spiritual touchstone for all the centers. The Generalate offices and the residence of our Mother General and Vicar General are a key part of the center.
A Growing Community
As a Community founded after Vatican II, we have experienced steady growth since our founding. We are proud to say that each new vocation has been a gift. Many wonderful and talented young women have found new life in entering and becoming vital members of the Community.
Following the Footsteps
Following the spirit of Saint Francis, the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist see manual work as an opportunity to be co-creators with God in making the world a more ordered place. It is an opportunity to engage with creation in challenging, productive and energetic ways so as to become more human, as Pope John Paul II teaches in his encyclical “On Human Work.”
