A Letter from Sister Barbara Johnson, Executive Director

Dear Friend,

Since the founding of the Franciscan Life Center, donors have played a critical role in our ability to provide on-going programs and services. The services we provide continue to grow, as do the number of requests we receive. Our website provides a glimpse at the programs and events that take place here, made possible in part by the generosity of this support.

We can’t do it without you! Join our efforts to serve people of all ages and stages of life.

We recognize that we are living through especially challenging economic times and are grateful for your financial support. We value your trust and promise to continue to be good stewards of your contribution.

On behalf of the staff of the Center and Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist, we thank you for your consideration and your prayers.

Sister Barbara Johnson, FSE
Executive Director, Franciscan Life Center

We are grateful for your support!
