Meet Sister Therese Lenz

ThereseLenz_Story"Conversion" conveys the idea of becoming-a process, a new beginning. It is a daily process of realizing our true worth. Francis and Clare took conversion to mean setting off in the direction of God. They prayed for guidance. When Francis opened Scripture and found, "Go sell what you have, give to the poor, and come and follow Me" (Mt. 19:21), he rejoiced! "This is what I wish; my heart (1C 22)." He had found his answer. He committed himselft totally to living the Gospel. Following the example of Jesus he committed himself to prayer and service.

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.
