Sr Joy, Sr Carolyn and Sr Maria Pacelli

2012-2016 Peacemaking Initiative:  We the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, Ohio, will focus both personally and communally, on study, reflection and action regarding the Franciscan call to peacemaking, care for the Earth and concern for the poor, in light of our Franciscan values.

As educators and health care workers, Sylvania Franciscans have long been involved with issues concerning women and children. Our present involvements include working to curb domestic violence, child abuse and human trafficking, as well as supporting initiatives that better the lives of women and children.

Sylvania Franciscans seek to help women and children by:

  • Supporting volunteering at Bethany House
  • Providing a compassionate heart, a listening ear, a helping hand or a loving touch to those who cross our paths
  • Supporting Clare’s Pence
  • Writing to legislators on domestic violence and other issues pertinent to women and children
