Meet Sister Elizabeth Martell

SElizabethMartell_StoryIn the writings of Clare we see her faith in the goodness of people and her deep faith and trust in the goodness of God. Francis and Clare lived the rule Francis wrote which is based on the Gosples. What an extraordinary gift it has been to be called to follow their example.

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is a community of Catholic women religious who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. We believe that the living of a poor, simple and prayerful community life is a ministry of presence and witness. Our doors are open to the public to celebrate Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel and to benefit from the St. Francis Music Center and St. Francis Health & Recreation Center. We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.
