Meet Sister Joan Gerads

MJoanGerads_StoryWebMany times in my life God "grabbed me" and wouldn't let go! His stron love has been with me through what would otherwise be unbearable difficulties. He has showered me with light and filled me with joy. I tingle when people say to me, "I want to tell you somethign I never told anyone before." I know they will talk about God revealing Himself to them. The God of surprises!

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.
