May Crowning 2022

On Monday, May 2nd, the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago met on the second floor of the Sacred Heart Chapel in Our Lady of Victory Convent, to celebrate May Crowning. 

"I felt the misery and suffering of others, and it seemed to me that I could not love Jesus, or even expect heaven if I were concerned only about myself...not suffering any inconvenience, but simply living in comfort." 

- Venerable Mary Theresa Dudzik, Foundress of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago
