The light from St. Clare’s lantern reminds us to be steadfast and courageous like she was when she was facing circumstances out of her control. This past year has certainly presented The Franciscan Center with opportunities to show our steadfast courage as the pandemic ebbed and flowed causing cancellations, rescheduling and challenges. As we enter into 2022, we continue to celebrate over 50 years of service to those seeking hospitality and spiritual support. Our faith reminds us that this too shall eventually pass so we continue to plan, schedule and dream. We are committed to your spiritual well-being and will be here when you need us. Peace in the coming year, we continue to pray for you and are keeping the lantern burning brightly.
