Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity share a press release explaining exciting changes in our re-named system office, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries, Inc.

A little over 25 years ago, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity (FSCC) decided to incorporate their various health care organizations into a single, unifying system, most recently known as FSCC HealthCare Ministry, Inc. This year, they are adding another organization to the group, Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, and are changing the system name to FSCC Sponsored Ministries, Inc.

“This is an exciting and important step for our community,” said Sister Louise Hembrecht, community director of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. “Bringing Silver Lake College into the system structure isn’t a matter of simply placing it under the care of the health ministry office, but taking all of our disparate and geographically diverse sponsored ministries and uniting them under one governance structure.” Silver Lake College of the Holy Family is a liberal arts college located near the sisters’ Motherhouse in Manitowoc, Wis.

As members of the system, each hospital and long-term care provider, and now Silver Lake College, remain responsible for their own financial viability, regulatory compliance, and mission integration. The system office personnel monitor each organization’s performance and provide assistance toward achieving goals and meeting requirements. “The oversight and services we provide as a system office strengthen our individual ministries, but also, and more importantly, provide a home in which our various organizations find and benefit by a sense of unity,” said Sister Laura Wolf, president of FSCC Sponsored Ministries, Inc.
