Thank you for supporting our Sylvania Franciscan Gala!
Save the Date: Franciscan Gala – September 23, 2017
The Sisters are pleased to honor Dale Thomas, as the recipient of the 2017 St. Francis Award, and Marianne Hassen as recipient of the 2017 St. Clare Award, both of whom exemplify the attributes of caring that both of our Franciscan leaders had in their lives. The awardees were chosen for their value filled lives today and what they share with the communities where they work and live. They join a list of caring leaders and role models for us all.
With over 300 in attendance at the 2016 Gala, we were able to generate over $100,000 to support the Sisters’ ministries. And none of this would have been possible without your generous and caring support.
We look forward to seeing you in 2017! Please know that you are a part of our past, our present and our future. In the words of St. Clare, “Let us pray God for each other, for in bearing each other’s burden of charity we shall fulfill the law of Christ.” Clare’s Letter to Ermentrude of Bruges.
