The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago Singing Group
The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago formed a singing group called 'Daybreak' in the 1970's. This group travelled and sang for many people at parishes, schools and churches. They also recorded two albums during this time called 'A New Kind of Freedom' and 'On the Way.' The album covers were designed by Sister Mary Sponsa Bajorek. Below you can see images of the original album artwork as well as thirty second song samples.
About the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago
We, the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago is a congregation of Catholic women living the Gospel life and dedicated to serving others for over 127 years. We serve the people of God through works prompted by our charism: care for children, the sick, the infirm, and the elderly; and pastoral and social services.
The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago have adapted to the changing needs of society and expanded and refocused its ministry to respond to the changing needs of those served. The ability and need to serve continues to evolve and we are responding with new ministries in the areas of affordable housing, home health, hospice, and various community benefit services. Guided by its Franciscan spirit, The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago celebrate life and are committed to joyful, compassionate service.
