Sisters of St. Francis of Mary Immaculate – Joliet, IL – “It is with great honor that we take part in some way in celebrating the 25th year of this unique and important service. Having not heard of this work before your invitation, it is especially exciting in this time when the Franciscan Federation is looking at our membership and how to better include all those whose mission in life reflects Saints Francis and Clare. The call is to widen the tent. It seems from your beginning your mission was to expand the number of persons who understand the reality of the poor throughout the world. The journey starts with personal knowledge. Our part is small, but having raised our awareness is worth a lot.”
