The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist is a Roman Catholic religious congregation for women. The motherhouse is in Meriden, Connecticut, in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Hartford.

The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist came into existence on December 2, 1973, as a result of a period of renewal within the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration of La Crosse, Wisconsin which led to a divergence of outlook within that Congregation.[1] In 2002, the Franciscan Brothers of the Eucharist was founded as a complement to the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist.

The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist, at one time, owned and operated a ferry and store on Shaw Island part of the San Juan Islands in the state of Washington. [2]

The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist share the original founders with the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration and the Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi of St. Francis, Wisconsin.
