During National Vocation Awareness Week 2010, Jan. 10-16, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite discerning young women to visit the Franciscanized World page at www.fscc-calledtobe.org to check out “Facets of Franciscan Calling,” the Franciscan service and ministry lived in community.
Listen to podcasts of Franciscan Srs. of Christian Charity Ann Marie Lom, who reflects on her call to be a woman religious and a trained spiritual director on staff at St. Raphael Parish, Oshkosh; Hannah Johnecheck’s thoughts on Franciscan community and service; and Marie Kolbe Zamora as she discusses her theological studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
Read “Sent To Serve,” a posting that explores the sisters’ postulants and novices’ formative mission experiences, which allow new members to learn more about the spirit and life of the congregation in smaller local community living in various geographical locations. The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity, established in 1869, serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in dioceses throughout the U.S.
