WE HAD A DREAM . . . to build a Chapel in which Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament could take place day and night, in which YOU could join us, the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George, in prayer and adoration before our Eucharistic Lord. On May 6, 1983, our dream became a reality: ST. FRANCIS ADORATION CHAPEL “SAN DAMIANO” was dedicated and opened.

Our Community and our beloved Bishop Joseph A. McNicholas, the late Bishop of the Springfield Diocese, ALSO HAD A DREAM . . . to establish the LEGION OF ONE THOUSAND, to find one thousand people to visit the Blessed Sacrament each week at our Adoration Chapel. Weekly visits may be made at the time most convenient for the individual member. The Adoration Chapel is open daily, 6:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.

The LEGION OF ONE THOUSAND is a spiritual organization. There are no meetings, no dues, no officers! We presently have 473 members. MY DREAM . . . is to increase our membership to one thousand.

Would you like to know more about the Legion? Would you like to become a member? Please contact Sister M. Anne at advancement@altonfranciscans.org or at 618-463-2761.
