Meet Sister Loretta Denfeld

Loretta-Denfeld-2015WEBThe Canticle of the Creatures always brings me to God and to prayer. One experience in particular is the song of the loon. Once when I spent time on the lake at Grey Eagle I had this awesome experience of the loons putting on a dancing concert for me. After that when I heard a lone loon, I wrote the following Haiku: "Lonely loon calling: Like a melancholy song: Stirs deep within me."

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.
