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.

Hope comes to life at the Franciscan Life Center.

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.
