Experience the natural beauty and tranquility of our 89-acre Motherhouse grounds. The campus includes a Prayer Garden, complete with walking paths and benches for meditating; numerous shrines honoring the life of St. Francis of Assisi; and Portiuncula Chapel, a sacred place for quiet reflection modeled after the 12th century church St. Francis prayed in. You can also visit the Heritage Room, where you can read and see the 105-year history of the community, and All Good Things, an art and gift shop featuring Franciscan items made by Sisters, Associates and friends. (Due to COVID 19 precautions, the Heritage Room currently is not open to the public, but All Good Things is open with a limit of three customers at a time.)
