The Sisters of St. Francis Philadelphia

In the spirit of St. Francis, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia are a hospitable face of our Church as we continue to meet and share meals and culture with our Muslim sisters and brothers from the Zubaida Foundation. In this ongoing relationship, we choose to live and act as instruments of peace and strive to be a sign encouraging others to do the same. To broaden our understanding of Islamic culture, the Advocacy Committee of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia has begun a relationship with the Zubaida Foundation in Yardley, Pennsylvania. We have met together five times to develop friendships, to share cultural experiences, and to reflect on our shared history.
