Celebrating Our Faithfulness
The Franciscan Sisters of Chicago celebrated their 21st General Chapter in June, 2018. The General Chapter is a time of reflection and prayer for the Sisters as they review their life and practices over the past five years and plan for the next five years as well as choose their leadership for the 2018-2023 term. Here is a video photo gallery of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago through the years, beginning with their foundress, Mother Mary Theresa Dudzik and progressing through the years with the Sisters in various ministries such as education, nursing, and elder care.
Hope for Haiti
Starting in 2017, Associates from Franciscan Ministries and all of its sponsored communities, were asked to donate to raise funds for a for a family in Haiti. Because of their generosity, a new home was built for the Rosie Compere Family residing in Holy Family Village in Pistere, Haiti. In honor of the Franciscan Sisters 125th Anniversary, and due to the generosity of Franciscan Associates, the legacy and dreams of Mother Mary Theresa continue with the gift of ‘another home that love built.’ Below is a video of the Franciscan Sisters of Chicago offering their thanks and blessings.
