We are celebrating "Stories of Spirit & Heart: Conversations with Catholic Sisters," and all are invited to experience them. This event, part of Catholic Sisters Week (March 8 to 14, 2020), will take place on Wednesday, March 11, at Catholic Theological Union (2nd floor, multipurpose space, 5461 South Cornell Ave., Chicago, Illinois). Several of our sisters living and ministering in the area will join the conversation and would love to see you there!
Interested in more FSPA stories about discerning and living religious life? Listen to Sisters Eileen McKenzie and Laura Nettles who recently shared some of their own in A Chat With Sisters. "Something about Franciscan spirituality captures you," says Sister Laura about visiting different religious communities while discerning. "Wonderful, wonderful faith-filled women, but something just didn't quite fit. When my spiritual director said, 'Have you thought about Franciscans?' it just clicked."
And we invite you to celebrate religious life every day with FSPA, a community of vowed Franciscan women centered in Eucharist, committed to be loving presence through prayer, witness and service. Interested in exploring with us? Click here.
