Franciscan Sisters Serving in the Delta

My life as a Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity has offered many opportunities to serve the Lord and His people.”

Sister Judy recalls; “after teaching for many years; I began parish ministry, where among other things, I taught Faith Formation and RCIA. Here in the Delta, I tutor some of our school students, visit with our parishioners who are in Nursing homes and those who are home bound, bringing them the Eucharist and news from our parish in an effort to keep them connected to our parish family.

 

When I, Sister Annette, was a young Sister I determined early on that I was not called to be a teacher. I wanted to be a homemaker, but the kitchen did not contain all of my interests. Though I love cooking and baking for the Sisters I also wanted to be involved with the Sisters in their work, or work in the local community. I have gotten into some teacher aid work and even filling in for some teachers in times of need. I have volunteered in a hospital and a nursing home, done village ministry in AZ. and began a Youth Group.

 

Currently, besides my cooking, I am journeying with a Secular Franciscan Fraternity and am a Support Staff person here at St. Francis School. When I answered the call God placed in my heart, I had no idea what was in store for me. I could never have imagined where His love would take me, but here I am at St. Francis of Assisi, Greenwood, MS. I couldn’t have planned my life as well as God did! I am so blessed and happy as a FSCC.
