Sylvania Franciscan Gala

Thank you for supporting our Sylvania Franciscan Gala!


Save the Date:  Franciscan Gala – September 23, 2017

Celebrating 100 years of compassion and care in our community!

Thank you for making the Sylvania Franciscan Centennial Gala a huge success!

The Sisters were pleased to honor Dee Resnick, as the recipient of the 2016 St. Francis Award, and Peggy Rabideau and Fred Brower as recipients of the 2016 St. Clare Award, all of whom exemplify the attributes of caring that both of these 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.
