Feedback for Sabbath House

Day in, day out, we do what we do here at Sabbath House. People come here for various reasons; we provide hospitality. We share life with neighbors. So once in a while, it’s encouraging to receive feedback from those around us.

This is some of what we heard:

  • Here is a place where one can focus. There is space for quiet and prayer. Green space is inviting.
  • Meals are simple with good wholesome food.
  • A long-term group meeting weekly noted the experience of hospitality including welcoming a service dog, reliability, tea.
  • This is an anchor in the central city, an oasis to all the local activities.
  • We fill the need for a small ecumenical retreat/prayer and discussion opportunity in the heart of a major city.
  • Franciscan Sisters and Associates can use the space to meet, to bring groups, to volunteer, to receive "bed and breakfast" and airport service.

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.
