Meet Sister Adela Gross


 Living the Franciscan life all these years has meant challenging myself daily to "follow in the footsteps" of Jesus as delineated by Francis. It has not been easy, but it has certainly been rewarding, leading to an inner peace and joy. The revised Rule continues to call me to that on-going conversion of life which makes this life possible and meaningful.

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.
