Meet Sister Gloria Haider

Sister Gloria HaiderSr. Gloria entered the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls when she was in her 40s. Entering a religious order had been in Sr. Gloria's mind when she was in her 20s. But it seemed that God was calling her to be near her parents as they were older, and she wanted to help them in their older years. Her grandparents had a deep faith in God and passed that faith on to her parents, to her, and to her siblings. She says, "I wanted to serve my parents in their old age. My mother died of pancreatic cancer when she was 67. For six months I did everything I could to help her stay home as was her wish. After she died in 1979 I helped my dad move from the family home to Assisted Living and finally to a Nursing Home. He died in 1995 when he was 91 years old."

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.
