Meet Sister Cecilia Schmitt

CeciliaSchmitt_StoryI chose religious life at 17 and was quite sure that if the sisters allowed me to stay, I would spend my life in the convent. In childhood, spending time in prayer delighted me as did my passion for music. I felt both of these pleasures would be present in my convent life and knew that this was the life for 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.
