Meet Sister Bernice Rieland

Sister Bernice RielandOne of Saint Francis's last messages to his followers was: "I have done what was mine to do. May Christ teach you what is yours." My deepest desire is to do what is mine to do...trusting that God will always be my guide and light. I pray I will always be open and have the courage to follow God's call, "living in the present" wherever that leads.

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.
