When the sisters personally touch your life and your children, it truly enhances your desire to want to give back — especially knowing these sisters ministered unselfishly to others for so many years. They deserve our support.
Jerry Mazurkiewicz, Mission Advancement Board Chairman
The time spent with Sister Ruth has brought us such joy, happiness and a great sense of love. We feel very blessed for her prayers for our family and her warm and caring ways.

Deborah Nailos, Franciscan Associate
I am so impressed at how involved the sisters are in social justice and service ministries. I see the true passion and love they have for God, their community and others.
Amy Adams, Former Change A Heart Member
Although it has been 40 plus years since having Sister Fabian as a teacher she has been someone who has had a positive influence on y life and I think of often. Although at that stage of my life I was not the best student but she always took the extra time to work with her students.
