Patron Saints/Famous Saints of the Community
Our patron saint is John the Baptist and we also honor with special devotion Infant of Prague, Mary, Mother of the Church, St. Francis, St. Joseph and Ven. Fulton J. Sheen
We strive to live our charism of Trusting God in Profound Humility and Joy according to the example of John the Baptist and with Franciscan simplicity. We serve our brothers and sisters according to the needs of the Church in the fields of healthcare, diocesan ministries and parish apostolate with plans for teaching. An indispensable part of our consecrated life is dedication to prayer and support of priests and seminarians.
Our community was founded on October 2, 2006 in Peoria, IL. Previously we were members of another religious order but we felt called to begin this new community.
We live strong and joyful community life rooted in the celebration of the Eucharist from which we draw strength for our apostolate and a life of sacrifice. Daily we pray the Divine Office in common as well as the Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet and other prayers. Our life balances prayer, work and recreation
