Advent Day of Reflection
Topic: Mary in our Christian Life: How Much Does She Matter?

Presenter: Sister Elise Saggau

During this day of reflection, we will consider Mary as a companion to us on our Christian journey. There will be exploration of some of what the New Testament writings tell us about Mary and what some contemporary theologians say about her. We will look for the historical Mary and see why she matters for us today. Presentations will be accompanied by times for personal reflection and discussion.

Elise Saggau, OSF, has a Master of Divinity degree from Loyola University in Chicago and a Master of Arts degree in Franciscan Studies from the Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University, St. Bonaventure, New York. She has many years of experience in education and Franciscan formation. From 1995 through 2001, she was editor of The Cord, an international Franciscan spiritual review, and served as Assistant Director of Publications at the Franciscan Institute. She is now engaged in writing the history of the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls and continues to write and give talks, especially on Franciscan spirituality.

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.
