Meet Sister Rita Kraemer

S-Rita-Kraemer-2016-StoryMy call to religious life brings back time of "wondering"...then knowing and wanting to respond to "that voice within." In striving to live the message of the Gospel, trust in God's Providence has become a daily prayer and resolve to all that occurs in my life. My varied ministries have given me, not only opportunities to serve, but to trust, learn, teach and witness to a manner of serving the needs of others that fosters quality, respect and regard, particularly, for the elderly.

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.
