In the last few days, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity welcomed 2 postulants. Tricia is from Kimbolten, OH. Megan’s home is Shawano, WI.
What happens next for Megan and Tricia? Instructions on religious life, personal prayer times and experiences of community life, ministry and study become important to their daily lives. Tricia and Megan will begin classes at Silver Lake College of the Holy Family on Monday, August 29, 2016.
Indeed, you can expect Megan and Tricia to share more about themselves in the days ahead. Pray with us for others making steps to follow a call to be Franciscan Sisters. St. Francis and St. Clare, pray for us!

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity share our charism built on 4 cornerstones: simplicity (firmly built on faith in a loving God), joyful acceptance of poverty, love for the Church and self-less dedication to the service of others.

Recently, the Diocese of Green Bay recognized religious, including members of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, celebrating jubilees of profession. Bishop David Ricken, Father Daniel Felton and Father Thomas Long presided over the afternoon liturgy acknowledging commitments of 25, 50, 60 and 75 years.
Celebrating in the Jubilee Year of Mercy, the jubilarians renewed their vows amid a crowd generous with applause. Some of those honored assist with liturgical roles. Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity led the music.
Peacemaking will be the focal Franciscan value for 2016-17 academic year at the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity-sponsored Silver Lake College of the Holy Family, Manitowoc, WI. Artist Sister Mariella Erdmann designed peace poles for the Clare Hall Peace Garden on the college grounds in keeping with this theme.
The artwork symbolizes oneness with all peoples and our common desire for a world of peace. We are to think, speak and act in the spirit of peace and harmony. ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ is written along the sides of the poles. The brightly-colored tops of the poles image fire, earth, air and water.
