Let us begin to serve the Lord God, for up until now we have done little or nothing. - St. Francis of Assisi (1C 22)
Get to know our Sisters! You may be surprised how diverse our personalities, talents and interests are, yet we have Franciscan joy and a passion for ministry in common. So many different ways to express our neighborly love! Whether you are looking for a spiritual neighbor, a way to partner with us in our advocacies or help in discerning if you might be called to religious life, we welcome you to St. Francis Woods!
