Mission Statement

The Franciscan Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, wishing to continue their 140+ years of service to the church and the community, manage and staff Villa St. Francis which is a residence for senior women.

The Franciscan Sisters minister to fulfill the needs for age 60+ independent women who wish to be free from the burdens of maintaining their own home, meal preparation, housekeeping, and all the other tasks involved in single living and at the same time have companionship in their later years in a warm, caring family atmosphere.
