Meet Sister Ardis Cloutier


 As Sister Ardis reflects on the past 68 years of being a Franciscan Sister of Little Falls, she says “They have been years filled with blessings, as has my entire life. I am so grateful for the many opportunities I have had in these 60 years. I have had the chance to cross paths with so many good people and have made so many friends over these years. Maintaining these relationships is very important to me and I consider this as a special ministry. Getting to know so many sisters, brothers and priests from other religious communities has been a broadening experience but has also given me a deep appreciation for my own religious community. I am proud and happy to be a Little Falls Franciscan and I dearly love every one of my sisters.”

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.
