Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart—Frankfort, IL (OSF) We, the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart, are called by God to live the Gospel life after
the manner of St. Francis of Assisi as women religious.
We joyfully embrace our vowed life in community
which is sustained by our personal and communal
prayer and sisterly love. We were founded in the
United States, in Avilla, Indiana in 1876. From the
very beginning our sisters did a variety of ministries.
We continue this tradition through our ministries in
health care, social service programs, education, parish
and pastoral ministry, retreat work and ministry
among the base communities in the Amazon. We are
currently in Indiana, Illinois, California, West
Virginia, and Brazil (in South America). Contact the

Glenmary Home Mission Sisters of America The Glenmary Sistersprovide missionary services to all God’s children in the Southeastern United
States including Appalachia. Serving in areas where
the Catholic population is less than 2 percent, their
ministry is guided by the Corporal Works of Mercy
to: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe
the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit
those in prison, and bury the dead. Through the
Glenmary Sister’s ministry of presence and
willingness to share in the daily struggles of the
families where they serve, the people of these areas
come to understand the love and concern of the
Catholic Church and their own dignity as children
of God. Contact: Barbara O’Nan, e-mail: barbara@

Hospitaler Sisters of Mercy (H.S.M.) The
Congregation of the Hospitaler Sisters of Mercy was
founded in Rome, Italy in 1821 by the servant of God,
Princess Teresa Orsini Doria Pamphili, with specific
charism of ‘Caring for the Sick.’ To assist Jesus in His
suffering membership is realized through our service
in hospitals and nursing homes where we care for the
sick. This charism took root in the USA in 1966 at the
invitation of His Excellency Most Rev. Celestino J.
Damiano, Bishop of Camden, NJ to staff and administer
Our Lady’s Multi-Care Center in Pleasantville, NJ
and the Bishop McCarthy Residence in Vineland, NJ.
Since 2000 we also administer Villa Raffaella, our own
Assisted Living facility. If you feel Jesus is calling you to
follow Him, please contact us. Sr. Theresina Thadathil,
