Just Five Days

Kathy Whittington, Volunteer Coordinator


The St. Cloud Diocese hosts a mission event for ninth graders called, “Just Five Days” from St. Mary’s Catholic School in Owatonna. They toured the campus and worked in the gardens on June 3-5. Sister Anne Furnstahl explained how her ministry of 40 years making and now distributing communion hosts has changed through the years. It looks like this is the first year of an ongoing relationship! Sister Ruth Lentner had them help in the garden one day and Bev Gerads put them to work in the Peace Garden on their last day. The highlight of their three days with us was meeting and talking with some of the sisters at lunch in the Dining Room. They were in awe of all the stories and could not believe that women almost 100 were still working and so vibrant!

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.
