To Benefit the Franciscan Life Center and Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care
25 Years of Mutual Collaboration
The Franciscan Advisory Board began meeting 25 years ago to support and promote the mission of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist through their counseling, education, care of the sick and end of life services. Earlier this month the board met to discuss fund raising efforts and new program developments for the Franciscan Life Center and Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care. Currently the board is composed of 12 dedicated men and women; two of whom have been on the board since it began 25 years ago.

Each year hundreds of individuals come to a renewed sense of hope through
the services for families, youth, married couples and older people
offered at the Franciscan Life Center.
Founded and operated by the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist since
1974, the center quietly effects change in the hearts of men and
women looking for perspective and purpose in their lives.
