On this Memorial Day Weekend while joining the citizens of the United States in remembering loved ones who performed duties in the armed forces and all men and women who died in military service, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity also recognize other couragous individuals whose convictions witness memorable lives of service to others today.
- Parents and Grandparents compelled to pass on knowledge and experience to a new generation, especially those celebrating the graduations of our future leaders
- diocesan priests, especially the newly ordained of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee– Fr. J. Angel Anaya, Fr. Mark J. Brandl, Fr. Aaron J. Esch, Fr. Daniel R. Janasik, Fr. Sean T. O’Connell, and Fr. Luke N. Strand
(Fr. Luke’s aunt, his mother’s sister, Mother Miriam, PCC, abbess of the Poor Clare Monastery in Kokomo, IN, was a member of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity before answering the call to the cloistered life.)
- Seven Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity celebrating 75 and 60 years of religious life
(Sister Clare Wegmann, OSF, Sister Anna Tisler, OSF, Sister Florence Piotrzkowski, OSF, Sister Francine Goodman, OSF, Sister Aurelia Hanousek, OSF, and Sister Carol Stiefvater, OSF, are pictured.)
