Meal Conversations Important to Franciscan Life

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity make a habit of eating together enjoying the conversation that erupts from lives shared in common. We foster love and concern for one another by creating an atmosphere of respect, peace, companionship and service. Often our Sisters take turns preparing the meal in smaller communities making meal time a selfless gift of whole-hearted nourishment.

Our Discernment Retreats offer this aspect of daily Franciscan life. Expect meal conversations with Sisters, and look forward to table conversation with those in Initial Formation (novices, postulants) during the weekend.

Postulant Regina writes how important table talk is to her. If you haven't read her letter to each of our Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, click here and enjoy.
