Meet Sister Anita Jennissen


 In 1962 at the opening of Vatican II, I had just begun serving in Peru in our first international mission. For me the greatest message from the Documents was the ne understanding of Church and the Body of Christ. It took Religious (priests, brothers and sisters) off the pedestal and placed them as one with all people. The beauty of this is also in the spirit of Francis, who by his life and example taught us that we are brothers and sisters with all of God's creation.

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.
