Franciscan in the Streets​
​"Franciscan in the Streets" features three Franciscan saints who lived radically during medieval times: Rose of Viterbo, Angela of Foligno and Margaret of CortonaSister Sarah offers modern day approach and invites us to consider our reactions to serving with love in the 21st century.

Heart of Adoration
For Franciscans, Eucharist is a participation in the incredible outpouring of God's Love. In "Heart of Adoration,” Sister Sarah shares how recognizing the multi-faceted presence of God among us in creation, in Scripture, in other persons and in the Eucharist, perpetual adoration is extended into daily actions. She’ll share how that extension serves as God’s healing presence to those in need.
