The Mural Sr. Jane Made

The final step to Making the Francis and Clare Mural a reality. You must visit the Center and go to the lower level, outside of the Kitchen and gaze in amazement! Sr. Jane, you have outdone yourself!


Praying for those who have come or will be coming to the Spirituality Center is something we take very seriously. We also include our partners in mission. The Sisters of St. Francis are a large part of this ministry. For many sisters, prayer is a full-time ministry. We welcome the opportunity to support your needs. If you have a specific prayer request you would like us to include in our intentions, please submit the form below.
