Our Congregation of Franciscan Sisters was established in Glasgow as an apostolic institute and follows The Rule and Life of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis. At the request of Pope Pius IX, who approved our first Constitutions in 1854, the year in which he proclaimed the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception, we honour our Blessed Lady as our special patroness and are known as Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.
As members of this Institute of Pontifical Right, we dedicate ourselves to a life of mission and evangelisation as we seek new and different ways to spread the good news of the Gospel message. Our primary apostolate is the witness we give through our different apostolates.
Pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for your priests in June
on her 25th Anniversary Religious Profession.
May you continue to be sustained by His Grace
and may your life in God's service
always be filled with joy.
Minute Meditations for Each Day
Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened,... and I will refresh you.
Mt 11: 28
In the midst of life's burdens there is one only: the immense
depth of God's that renews us even when human comfort falls short.
The only thing the Lord asks is that we come to Him.
We, Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception
rejoice with our Sister, Sr. Clementina Obembe
At the General Audience Wednesday, Pope Francis recalled that Friday, 3 June, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus which he said this year “is enriched by the Jubilee for Priests.”
“I invite everyone to pray to the Heart of Jesus for the entire month of June and to support with closeness and affection for the priests so that they always reflect the image of that Heart full of merciful love,”
