Sisterhood of St. Francis


All women of the parish, visitors, friends, and neighbors are cordially invited to strengthen their relationship to each other and Christ as a Catholic community.

What is the Sisterhood of St. Francis?

The Sisterhood of St. Francis began September 11, 2010 as an opportunity for all the women of the parish to come together as a group for prayer, fellowship, inspiration and support of one another.  Getting to know each other in this setting may enable women to find something that will fulfill their needs or expectations as Christian women and will give all the chance to learn more about our parish and what it has to offer us.

When does it meet?

Meetings will occur monthly by alternating between first Thursday nights 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm and first Saturdays 11:30 am to 1:30 p.m.  Thursday meetings will include a potluck supper and Saturday meetings will include a potluck luncheon.  See the bulletin or the events calendar or the website for details each month on what dish to bring.

What is the meeting format?

The meeting format will include an hour for fellowship/meal and an hour for a brief bible reflection, inspirational message provided by a guest speaker or a member of the group, and prayer/song.  After we adjourn, those wishing to recite the Holy Rosary will pray in the chapel.

Possible Inspirational meeting topics to be covered:  In Celebration of Women, Fruits of the Holy Spirit, Today’s Motherhood, Prayer for Busy Women, Unbridled Grace, Carmelite Spirituality or even a one-day women’s retreat  in lieu of one month’s meeting.
