Franciscan Sisters have a January song for you.

Career, Calling, Vocation. Gifts and talents, desire and destinies. “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked in a recent Gospel reading? What are your gifts as a young adult? As a college student? As a Catholic growing in faith? Everyone who seriously reflects on life at some point asks “ Do I dare believe? Do I dare step forward? Why is it so challenging for some to discern a calling in life?”Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are featuring Do I Dare by David Wilcox

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to listen, reflect and act on David Wilcox’s music Do I Dare. Click here.

Catholic Schools Week brought Roncalli High School Students to our Motherhouse in Manitowoc, WI. Our Sisters who gave the students and faculty member music lessons in the past were especially touched by the beauty of the music and the thoughtfulness of the faculty and students.
