Join the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George for an Open House celebrating 150 years of God's faithfulness. Mother M. Anselma Bopp founded the congregation in Thuine, Germany in 1869 and since then, the charism of merciful love has been carried out through a variety of apostolates. Visitors are welcome to come for a tour of the convent for a chance to learn more about our life and the history of our congregation. Click here for more information and to register. We look forward to welcoming you!
Today, on the Feast of the Birth of Mary, our new postulants entered the postulancy of our American Province of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George! We thank God for the gift of these vocations. Pictured above - on their very first full day in the convent - are (from left) Ashley Vola, Samantha Goodson, Miranda Edgar, Jennifer Clark and Erin Leis. Welcome, Postulants! We Sisters are grateful that you have accepted Christ's invitation to belong totally to Him in our Franciscan community, and we support you wholeheartedly with our prayers and help! If you would like to send a word of welcome and encouragement to these new postulants, we will pass the greetings along to them. Just leave them as a "comment"!
