Franciscan Federation honors Sister Donna Zetah

Sisters Donna and Bea Eichten
In July Sister Donna Zetah, a Franciscan Sister of Little Falls, was recognized as a 2014 Peace Honoree at the annual Franciscan Federation conference. Sister Donna studied to become a registered nurse so that she could serve those in need, which turned into a life-long ministry. After serving in various hospitals, she went to Peru in 1968 to work as a nurse. When she returned 10 years later, she worked with the Midwest Migrant Health to bring health care and health education to Spanish-speaking migrant workers in nearly 30 locations in the United States and in Honduras and Guatemala. Now, at age 85, she serves the Hispanic population in the Little Falls area, offering translation and advocacy services. She also visits people in their homes, in hospitals or nursing homes—wherever there may be need.

Sister Donna is such a warm-hearted person. She is a true follower of St. Francis. I am so happy she was recognized as such.

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.
