Meet Sister MaryLou Eltgroth

MaryLouEltgroth_StorywebFrancis's Preaching to the birds and the wolf of Gubbio are my favorite stories. We read that "a Great multitude of birds of various kinds had assembled." Birds of different species normally don't mingle. The variety symbolizes people of all races and personalities who together make up a single, diverse flock of humanity. Francis teaches that we must not only care for nature and each other but share the Good News of God's love for all 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.
