Children brush the goats at summer program

The Franciscan Life Center is proud to be the recipient of grants from the Cuno Foundation and the Ion Bank Foundation for its Franciscan Land-based Summer Experiences and Youth Leadership. The grant offers children and youth the opportunity to participate in summer programs fostering animal care, gardening, baking, leadership skills and good old fashion fun.

Families interested in sending their child/children to either of these summer programs, contact Sister Anne Therese Yuen, FSE, at 203-237-8084 or visit
