Our retreat director is Sister Sandra Schneiders, IHM.

Later she went to Rome and earned her doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Gregorian University, specializing in biblical studies with a special interest in the Gospel of John and the theory of Biblical interpretation, and spirituality. After she finished her studies she was professor of New Testament Studies and Spirituality at the Jesuit School of Theology and the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley, CA. She is now professor emerita at GTU, spending most of her time in research, writing, publishing, consulting and lecturing throughout the United States and abroad while continuing to teach in various programs.

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.
