Covenant

  • Do you value quality relationships?
  • Do you want to deepen your spiritual life?
  • Are you looking for support on the spiritual journey?
  • Are you drawn to the Franciscan way of life?

Covenant Membership (Association) is one way of belonging to the Wheaton Franciscan community. Covenant members are women and men who are seriously pursuing growth in their spiritual journey. Covenant members choose to make a public and formal commitment (covenant) to embrace the mission, charism, and philosophy of the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters.

The form of life of a covenant member is this: to observe the Gospel, living in respect for all creation, in gratitude for God’s generous love, and in loving relationship with one another. Following the example of St Francis, St. Clare, and Mother Clara, covenant members recognize that they are called to make greater efforts to integrate the gospel in every aspect of their lives.
