There will be a lot of sharing when all of our Franciscan Sisters gather at our Motherhouse in Little Falls, MN June 12 -18, 2010. Just as Sister Paula Pohlman and Sister Mary Obowa (pictured here) go to it heart to heart, so will the 160+ of us catch up on one another's journey during this annual June gathering. We will delve deeply together into the meaning of our Franciscan Community life for today. What is new in 2010 that is calling to us? We will pray, celebrate, laugh and cry together, and then we will return to our homes in the U.S., Mexico, and Ecuador recommited to read our world in the light of the Gospel and to respond with fresh faith in God and one another. Will you hold us in your prayer, please? Thank you.
Written by Sister Jan Kilian, this blog will give an understanding of what it’s like to be Franciscan. Living out the spirit of Saint Francis, we see all God’s creation as brother and sister. We, Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, are committed to building relationships and community, ministering wherever there is greatest need, promoting justice and healing Mother Earth’s wounds. My writings will give a glimpse of the compassion, spirituality, interconnectedness and goodness of living Franciscan.
