Religious Retreats and Events Designed for You!

I really loved learning the rules of discernment and having tangible ways of knowing what is from God. -Shaina

In the new year 2019 let us help design a discernment experience just for you at our Wisconsin Motherhouse or a convent near you. Like St. Francis’ who looked for sacred spaces to be with God, expect solitude and silence to be balanced with service to others as you discern if you are called to be a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity. Call or text Sister Julie Ann at 920-323-9632 with your questions. Register here.

Discerning Megan called to be Franciscan Postulant

We invite you to view some of the Catholic vocation videos, featuring a diversity of our Franciscan Sisters, some who have served over 50 years, some who have served for 10 or 20 years, some in formation as novices and postulants. You’ll meet some of our sisters ‘in prayerful action’, as well as some of the wonderful people we serve. From students at St. Francis School in Greenwood Mississippi to St. Peter School in Bapchule, Arizona.  From patients, physicians and staff at our health care system in Ohio to young adults at San Xavier Mission. From a Sister serving as a Spiritual Director and Campus Minister in Houghton Michigan to young women having fun and involved in discernment at Camp Franciscan.
