Meet Sister Therese Furnstahl


 My favorite conversion story is when Francis knelt before the bishop and gave up all his worldly possessions saying, "From now on I can freely say, 'Our Father who art in Heaven'." Francis had a great love for the prayer Jesus taught us. We too should recite it often by pondering each word.
Conversion is accomplished in our daily lives through reconciliation, concern for the poor and the exercise of justice and right.

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.
