70 Years of Franciscan Love

Earlier this year, identical twins Mary Clare and Mary Robert Bernet celebrated 70 years as Sisters of St Francis. Their relationship with the sisters dates back to when the twins were children and living at Mount Loretto Orphanage, where Sisters of St. Francis ministered. Sisters Clare and Robert ministered as teachers for 60 years; they now live in Peekskill. The sister Sisters say they would not trade their vocation “for anything. We were happy that we were both called by God,” says Sister Clare.
