Franciscan Sisters Visit Pittsburgh St. Paul Cathedral

by Sister Julie Ann on November 13, 2015

Franciscan Sisters attending the 2015 Congress of the Religious Formation Conference Rejoice! God’s Tomorrow Beckons saw the beauty of industrial Pittsburgh, PA. One evening we maneuvered bridges, construction, traffic and tunnels to pray at St. Paul Cathedral.

Interestingly, it is St. Joan of Arc who receives a sacred chapel near the front entrance of the church. Her words (“God wills it.”) are shown more than once on tapestries in back of a large, dark statue. It is quite a vocation statement. Franciscan Sisters visit St. Paul Cathedral Pittsburgh, PA. St. Joan of Arc Chapel railing

St. Joan of Arc, pray for all discerning God’s will.

    Thank you for sharing your adventure to St. Paul Cathedral. Your insights and impressions are a blessing to many of us. Let us all pray that young adults reflect on a possible call to religious life.

    Thank you for being a presence among the young adults at the conference. It is neat that you could reconnect with former acquaintances. The elephant ears were a clever idea to remind us to listen to God.
