Spiritual Direction for Individuals

Facilitated by a Franciscan Sister, spiritual direction is an on-going, one-to-one sharing with a spiritual guide. It is for persons desiring to become more conscious and intentional about one’s relationship with God. This privileged time of sharing provides an opportunity to reflect with another about his/her spiritual journey. The agenda of spiritual direction includes anything that impacts one’s life.


Group Spiritual Direction

In Group Spiritual Direction each individual experiences guidance in the context of those present. A facilitator provides structure to the group process. The goal is to become more aware, open and responsive to the God who continually seeks a more intimate relationship with us.


Solitude Experiences

Create an alone space for yourself by entering into solitude and a deeper communion with God in an institutional setting or in one of our Hermitages. As we spend time alone near the earth and its creatures, mysteries of life are often revealed. We are drawn into a deeper relationship with all of life, including the source of life, God.


Private Directed Retreat for Individual or Small Groups

A director can be available to facilitate either an individual or a small group retreat. Cost will depend on requested number of days and the number of persons making the retreat.

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is a community of Catholic women religious who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. We believe that the living of a poor, simple and prayerful community life is a ministry of presence and witness. Our doors are open to the public to celebrate Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel and to benefit from the St. Francis Music Center and St. Francis Health & Recreation Center. We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.
