Sister Anna singing accompnied by 
Father Peter on the violin Proclamation of God's Good news has taken diverse forms. Parish Missions / Retreats / Revivals (weekend and three or four evenings) have been presented for a single parish, for a cluster of parishes, and for an ecumenical group in a town or area.

Retreats and days or evenings of prayer have been offered to a wide variety of groups of sisters, Protestant and Catholic clergy, laymen and laywomen, and youth groups.

Father Peter and Sister Anna have created a dramatic presentation about the lives and spirituality of St. Francis and St. Clare: "Sacred Creation". Sometimes it is a stand-alone presentation and sometimes they incorporate it as a part of their retreats and missions.

Our Goal is to enter into the ministry of Proclamation from a contemplative base, by:

  • Preaching at parish missions, retreats and days of renewal in a collaborative style
  • Collaborating with the Franciscan Ministry of the Word of Holy Name Province
  • Ministering in the parishes of the Albany Diocese (weekends, presentations, etc.)
