Seeing as Saint Francis Did

St. Francis' vision is the focus of a Discernment Retreat on March 16-18, 2018 with the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. Young adult women are invited to our Motherhouse to see as St. Francis did, to see as Jesus did. Sister Anne Marie Lom facilitates this weekend experience that encourages the contemplation of Jesus' words from Scripture as well as St. Francis' own words.

If you wish to be perfect go and sell all your possessions and give to the poor. You will have treasure in heaven.Then come follow me.(Mt 19:21, Lk 18:22)

If anyone wishes to follow me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me. (Mt 16;24)

 If these words speak to your heart, expect time during the retreat for Community prayer, interaction with Sisters and service to others. Call or text Sister Julie Ann at 920-323-9632 with any questions. Register at
