This coming May 12th will be a big day at St. Francis Convent! We will be celebrating the Diamond Jubiliee, that is, 60 years of religious profession, of our Sister M. Wencesla. You can read more in an article in the Alton Telegraph . Thank you Lord for the gift of her life and her service to the Church! She is an inspiring example to each of us of prayer, joy and fidelity. Please pray for her. We will celebrate with a Jubilee Mass at 9am and a reception from 3-5pm at St. Francis Convent.
The Franciscan Way of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George is the road that St. Francis followed: in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and in the spirit of our foundress, Mother M. Anselma.
