Meet Sister Lorraine Olmscheid

LorraineOlmscheidWeb"This is the day the Lord has made" (Ps 118). Yes, today is the one day, every day, that I am a Franciscan, a follower of Francis and Clare. Today is the day that I remember that God loves me and that I need to be the hands and feet that Jesus can use to minister to sisters in community and to the elderly, because what Jesus has begun I am called to complete.

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.
