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.

SAVE DATE: June 9, 2013

Life moves in moments that somehow turn into years, and somehow turn into whole lives.  None of this happens without the "moments," which we so take for granted and unfortunately can't begin to pay due attention.  In the moment captured above, Clare's Well staff, (Sister Paula, Carol, and I with Roxanne Wagner (taking the photo) met with Joan Pauly-Schneider (center) and Ginny Belden-Charles (far right) to consider how we might pause, pay attention to and celebrate 25 years of quite amazing moments at Clare's Well. 

June 9, 2013 marks the actual anniversary of Sisters Carol Schmit and Aggie Soenneker moving into the farmhouse on this land, June 9, 1988.  How can we best gather the energy of guests who will come to an open house June 9th?  It is one thing to review the past; it is something else to open the present moment as a door to the future.  This is the threshold of the coming quarter century.  We call the celebration an "open house."  So . . . .? ? ?  Come cross the threshold with us.
