On October 12, four women and one man made their commitment to the Franciscan Sister and Associate Relationship at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls, Minnesota. Associates are single or married, men, women and families of different denominations who desire to deepen their spirituality, are willing to grow as whole persons through the sharing of life and prayer and who want to share in the spirit, mission and direction of the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota.
Franciscan Associates commit, through their varied lifestyles, to live Gospel values in the spirit of Saints Francis and Clare, in companionship with the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, MN, and one another. Together they share those values with all God's people and all creation. In so doing, they collaborate in building God's reign of peace for all. -Mission Statement of the Associates of the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota
