For 144 years the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have dedicated themselves to the love of God and service to the People of God. On November 9, 1869, five young Catholic women in rural Wisconsin responded to the inner call to give all to their Lord, Jesus Christ and to serve the needs of this pioneer land. Today the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity continue to strive whole-heartedly to live the spirit of their foundresses. The 21st century may present challenges which appear different from those the founding Sisters had experienced. However, the Sisters’ response is the same: “to observe the Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, living in obedience, in poverty and in chastity.”
