Sylvania Franciscan Village

Creating a greater culture of unity rooted in the values of St. Francis


The Sylvania Franciscan Village is an initiative created by the Sylvania Franciscan Leadership and their sponsored ministries in 2009 to create a greater culture of unity rooted in the values of St. Francis.

Deeply rooted in the values of St. Francis of Assisi, the Franciscan Village strives to:

  • Create uncommon connections and multi-generational experiences
  • Model an environment of peace, compassion, justice, and reverence for all life
  • Bring our resources together and reach out into the community to address needs wherever we serve
  • Through our Wellness Initiative, we promote, nurture, celebrate and reverence the wholeness of each person we serve. All those impacted through this initiative find fullness of life.
