The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist were founded in 1973 and received full pontifical status in 1982. The Franciscan Sisters have established a way of life that endeavors to integrate the perennial values of the Catholic Church, the centering power of the Holy Eucharist, the spirituality of St. Francis and St. Clare, and the need for bonding in community in order to meet the demands of the contemporary apostolate.

Dedicated in a particular way to the sacredness of human life and the inviolability of the human person, the community exercises its mission through programs of counseling, education, health care, music, land experience, and service to the family and the elderly.

The Motherhouse is in Meriden, Connecticut with Centers located in Lowell, Michigan; Cloquet, Minnesota; Pocatello, Idaho; Bridal Veil, Oregon; Houston, Texas; Falls Church, Virginia; San Francisco, California; Jerusalem; Assisi and Rome, Italy.
