Prayer Requests

Submit a special prayer request for the Sisters at the Franciscan Spiritual Center. We may also share your requests with our sisters in the motherhouse community and our retired sisters at Assisi House, Aston, PA and St. Ann Home, TACOMA, WA. Our retired sisters are clearly a powerhouse of prayer. When they enter our retirement facilities, they are actually “missioned” to a prayer ministry.

Inspirational Videos

Take a look at some inspirational YouTube clips that might calm your spirit, move you to gratitude, or just make you feel good about who you are. It might be a way to get connected with your inner self, your God and with others. In the Online Spirituality section of our website, in addition to the inspirational videos, we have some Scriptural Videos and retreat starters as well as some ideas for journaling and labyrinth spirituality.
