Meet Sister Fran Kempenich

FranKempenich2_StorywebI became aware of the need to protect and care for the environment around 1970. I had just returned from our mission in Peru, and having experienced the poverty there and coming back to our wasteful society in the United States, I was deeply affected. I started at the time and continue to do all I can to protect and care for our environment.

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.
