Meet Sister Trudy Schommer

Trudy_Schommer_Story"Praise be to You, my Lord, for Sister Water..." Water has always fascinated me and has been very healing. When I was a child, growing up across the road form Holy Name Lake, I spent many hours fishing, wading and sitting on the banks of the lake. When I was working in the inner city and was constantly in the presence of the suffering Christ, I would often take time to walk along the shores of a lake to refresh myself. As I took in the beauty of the water and woods, I could physically feel my soul being regenerated and filled with a different presence of the divine Creator.

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.
