"Celebrate the Sisters" service held at St. Francis Convent

Celebrate the SistersThe Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls were recognized on Wednesday, April 8,  in a celebration entitled, Celebrate the Sisters, held at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls. The sisters were honored by their Franciscan Associates, employees, volunteers, supporters, friends and family. To add to the celebration, choirs from Mary of Lourdes Elementary and Middle School, along with the choir from Holy Family Parish, Little Falls where the sisters once served, participated in the event. Together, these individuals gathered to give thanks, sing and offer support and prayers to the sisters and all those who live the consecrated life. The service ended with all the participants blessing the sisters, priests, brothers and deacons in attendance.

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.
