Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph

Called by God into the Fraternity of Francis, we live in Simplicity, Servanthood, and Joy, renewing the spirit of Mother Colette Hilbert, "In all things Charity."

The Franciscan Sisters of St. Joseph are praying privately and in small groups for those suffering from Coronavirus as well as their families, friends, the health care workers, grocery store workers and all those essential workers.  You are held tenderly in our hearts and prayers.

Good Friday

Good Friday is the day most Christians come together in great sorrow remembering the suffering and death of Jesus.  This year we will be doing that privately or in very small groups in our families.  Jesus suffered because he loves us and wanted to teach us how greatly God loves us.  Let us pray for those who suffer from the Coronavirus but also those who suffer all year long from racism, human trafficking and so many other injustices.
Ambiance was created by Sr. Ann Lyons, FSSJ and assisted by Sr. Joyce Kubiniec, FSSJ

Holy Thursday

This is the first Holy Thursday, for most of us, without the celebration of Mass.  It is a difficult thing for most Christians.  Yet, as we do not have our spiritual food, Communion, let us remember those who do not have enough physical food most of their lives.  Because of poverty and for many, circumstances beyond their control, they do not have the nourishment they need.  Let us pray for those who are hungry for food, love, hope and peace all year long.
