Coming to America!
August 29, 2020
St. Francis Center for Renewal is excited to celebrate the heritage and history of the School Sisters of St. Francis in America at Monocacy Manor. On August 29, we will gather virtually to honor a ministry that began in Europe and was brought to our shores over 100 years ago.
In keeping with our Gala traditions, the Center is once again delighted to ‘shine our light’ on the event’s honorees: Joe & Shirley Knecht Hixson, NIna Marie Corona – 2020 Woman of Strength and +Anthony Myers – the 2020 Troubadour of Light recipient.
We also celebrate with gratitude the dedication and ministry of Sr. Anita Kuchera and Sr. Barbara DeStefano. Through their stewardship and love, St. Francis Center for Renewal has been a place of prayer, inspiration and healing for thousands of people from the Lehigh Valley and beyond, for over 70 years!
We hope that you will join us in this celebration of our history and our future. We are sure that you will enjoy the wonderful program that we have lovingly prepared for you.
Through the generosity of many, the Star Struck Online Auction holds well over a hundred amazing items for you to bid on. All proceeds from the Auction will support the Center…at a time when there is great need.
To take part in the festivities, you will need to register.
