Franciscan Footprints

This is the last Open House we'll be having for our celebration of the Year of Consecrated Life.  We hope you'll be able to join us.

So, our first open house was a tour of our motherhouse with exhibits and talks on different aspects of our life.  The second one was a time to work with our sisters at various outreach projects that serve our mission, and a chance to learn about ways you can continue to help with those efforts.  This third and final one will be a pilgrimage of prayer around the various shrines on our motherhouse grounds.

This event is focused on prayer, which is central to our lives as religious.  We will process from Chapel to various little shrines around our motherhouse with hymns, prayers, and readings.  On returning to the Chapel we will pray Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours.  (It may be an abbreviated form, I'm not too sure about that.)

And, of course, there will refreshments served at the end. :)

If you, or someone you may be bringing, has limited mobility, there will be some accommodations for that.  It would be helpful though if you called the motherhouse ahead of time so that they know if they need to bring out extra wheelchairs, etc.

Where: Motherhouse of The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis, 1175 St. Francis Lane, East Peoria, IL (It is on access road 14 on IL Route 116 just west of Germantown Hills.)

When: Sunday, September 13, 2015 2:00-4:00 PM (Please arrive between 1:30 and 2:00 PM.  The service will begin at 2:00 PM from the main Chapel and you will want to be ready in Chapel before it starts.)
