Since conversations with young women often include curiousity about ‘what a typical day is like’, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity hope to answer that question with yet another posting on the life of their Sisters. The Franciscan Sisters serving at St. Peter’s Indian Mission, Bapchule, AZ, promise to share their lives on the Gila River Reservation and beyond.

Sister Martha Mary Carpenter, OSF (AKA Sister Martha), Sister Barbara Jean Butler, OSF, Sister Carol Mathe, OSF, Sister Elaine Turba, OSF, Sister Juana Lucero, OSF, Sister Linda Brandes, OSF, and Sister Thereselle Arruda, OSF will take turns commenting to ensure a multi-perspective approach. The Gila River Indian Community is located approximately 34 miles south of the Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona. All of the Sisters live in a convent near the school.

So Sisters, what do you do all day?
