Meet Sister Tonie Rausch


 Peering through the telescope of past life and reaching through my imagination to the future, in light of eons of years that have been since creation and, no doubt, will continue for eons into the future, what can I say? Gratias! Merci Beaucoup! Asante Sana! Danke Schon! to all that has been! And, because "Whatever will be, will be!" I stand before the Triune God with open arms to a hope-filled future, trying my best to participate in the coming of the Kingdom, walking the walk, one day at a time.

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.
