In 2005-6 Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity located at St. Mary of the Annunciation convent in Kaukauna, Wisconsin prayed for a year that the convent they were leaving would eventually be used by a ministry that would keep open the chapel. Three of our Sisters, Pacifica, Eugene and Genevieve, arrived in 1887 to take over the school. After 121 years of service, in June of 2006, our Sisters said their good-byes. Twelve years later, Mary of the Annunciation joined Elizabeth of the Visitation and this convent became the headquarters for the Elizabeth Ministry International Headquarters Center.
On May 31, 2018, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were invited to celebrate the Feast of the Visitation at the open house for the Elizabeth Ministry International Headquarters Center now located in our old St. Mary’s Convent.
In the afternoon a special rooms dedication service was held. A Certificate of Dedication, received by Sister Natalie, reads: This acknowledges that the Visitation Chapel has been dedicated in honor of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in recognition of their presence which created this sacred space.
