Franciscan Associate Commitment Day

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls welcomed nine new Franciscan Associates in a ceremony at Sacred Heart Chapel, St. Francis Convent, Little Falls, on Sunday, October 14. Franciscan Associates are women, men and families who proclaim their call from God to live the spirit, charism and mission of the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota. They commit to a mutual relationship and live the commitment within their own lifestyles as they joyfully follow the Gospel values in the footprints of Saints Francis and Clare!

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.
