This Black History Month, we continue honoring Sister Thea Bowman’s remarkable journey. In week two, we explore the early days where Bertha, as she was known then, embraced the Franciscan path in La Crosse, Wisconsin, far from her Mississippi home. 

According to Sister Charlene Smith, Bertha “glowed” during her first steps into FSPA postulancy. Join us every Friday to uncover more insights into Sister Thea Bowman’s inspiring life. Discover the radiant simplicity of a woman whose journey left an enduring impact.
