Meet Sister Carmen Barsody

Sister Carmen BarsodyThe Franciscan Sisters nurtured my heart and mind. They were common people who enjoyed being a part of the parish and school community. I'm grateful for the values that they instilled in us, most keenly to be of service.

It is with a deep trust in "the Spirit of God is at work within me" that I pursue the stirrings and longings of my heart without knowing where I will be led. I feel a profound gratitude for all that I have lived, even the most difficult and confusing times, as each experience and each ministry has been preparation for the next. To live fully alive and to let myself be an instrument through which the creative spirit works fives me a fulller meaning to the word joy.

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.
