Introduction to the community

Helige Franciskus Systraskap (Sisters of Saint Francis) is a community in the Swedish Lutheran Church. We follow an adapted version of the Catholic Rule for the Third Order Regular of St Francis.

Our convent is situated 40 kilometres north east of Göteborg. Our life has its center in prayer, community life and meeting others either in our guest house, in the village or when invited to parishes, prayer groups, networks and other gatherings.
