Featuring: the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity

I've recently been made aware of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. Although they are not a community which directly appeals to me, I am not so naive as to think that they aren't beautiful and right for someone else. So.. I will feature them gladly. You may form your own opinions from there.

Navigating their website is easy and fun! The colors are well coordinated and the pictures are just lovely - they look so happy! As a Congregation of apostolic women religious in the Church, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity respond to
God's call through a public life of professed evangelical counsels. They embrace the Franciscan heritage: to live the Gospel as Francis did in fraternity, total self-emptying, joy and peace. The cornerstones of which their congregation is built are:

Simplicity, firmly built on faith in a loving God
Joyful acceptance of poverty
Love for the church
Selfless dedication to the service of others

You can learn more about them by visiting their website. You can see what they do and where they do it. You can view their blog, check out the podcast, and read their monthly meditations in the 'Franciscanized World' section.

Oh.. and before I forget: I should also mention their upcoming Lenten retreat! You can get the details on that here. You may also contact the Sisters directly:

Phone: 920-682-7728
E-mail: Sister Mary Ann Spanjers

Until next time.. God bless and be holy!
