Dear Friends and Supporters,

Peace and blessings to you.

In these unprecedented, challenging times, and after careful consideration, we are sorry to inform you that the 2020 Franciscan Sports Banquet and Silent Auction is cancelled. Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the new date for the 35th anniversary banquet. We are excited that all of our 2020 honorees will be there!

We will be disappointed not to see you at the Aqua Turf this year. However, your ongoing support is integral to our mission. You give hope to those suffering from anxiety, depression, and fear when you give to the mission of our counselors and doctors at the Franciscan Life Center. You bring compassionate care to the home bound when you support our Franciscan Home Care and Hospice Care nurses, therapists and aides. You go to the front lines of the pandemic when our professional staff treats Covid-19 positive patients as they return home.

As we face the impacts of the coronavirus and of the tension and suffering in our nation and the world, it is more important than ever that we find a way to offer hope and unity, and affirm the dignity of each and every human life. This is our work and mission every day. We ask your help as we live with the financial loss of this major fundraising event. If you are able to donate, please visit the website for information about how you can continue your support of our mission or click on the “donate” button below which secures the future of our programs.

We are sensitive to the challenges you, your families and your companies may also be experiencing due to the pandemic. Therefore, please know we are making this request only if a contribution is within your means.

You are in our prayers. We thank you for supporting our mission and we ask God to bless you. See you in 2021.

Gratefully yours,

Sister Barbara Johnson, F.S.E.
Executive Director
Franciscan Life Center

Sister Suzanne Gross, F.S.E.

We are grateful for your support!
