The formation of a Franciscan Sister of the Sacred Heart is the journey of a lifetime.
The Candidates must be of legal age (18 and over) to be accepted into Candidacy. Candidates in their 40s are evaluated on a case by case basis. Inquirers below age 18 are welcome to discern with us. Vowed membership is open to single, Catholic women (widowed or divorced with annulment) who want to grow closer in their relationship with God and are seeking a community of Consecrated Religious women who live the Gospel way of life.
Several stages of discernment and formation precede vowed membership. To learn more, please contact Sr. Maria Brizuela directly at 815.464.3873 or mailto:email@example.com.
