Following two years of intense community wide Chapter preparation, a Quasi chapter, and six months of prayer, the time had finally come for Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Chapter 2013. Delegates and fellow Sisters arrived from missions near and far. All arrived with hearts that have listened to the Spirit and to their fellow Sisters.
