Meet Sister Annella Bieniek

2016-USEAs a child raised on the farm, respect and reverence for the earth was part of living. Love and care produced plentiful gardens, fields rich with grain, colorful flowers and beautiful orchards. When government stepped in, trouble began for farmers. 

Family dependence on God influenced my life. I marveled with awe at the beauty of creation and what the land could produce. We were grateful for the gift of water and couldn't believe how, in time, it could be scarce and so polluted.

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.
