Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception


Scotland FlagComing to Glasgow’s East End in 1847 from France, Mother Veronica Cordier and Mother Adelaide Vaast began the work of our Congregation by educating and caring for poor and needy children families, including the growing number of Irish immigrants.
The first eight novices were professed in St. Andrews Cathedral in 1851 and from that point our Franciscan Community was established.
