Autumn Gala


Autumn Gala – A Harvest of Gratitude

You are cordially invited to join us for a virtual harvest of gratitude as we remember the past, joyfully celebrate the present, and faithfully go forward into the next century of our Franciscan mission.

October 3, 2021

7:00 PM – Live Gala Program and Raffle Drawings on Facebook

Blessed to be Sisters of St. Francis of the Providence of God for 99 years, we faithfully go forward together with hope and faith in our Provident God. More than ever, we are grateful for your presence in our lives and solidarity to our Franciscan mission to serve our neighbors in need, care for all of God’s creation, and work for peace and justice. Our 17th annual Autumn Gala of Gratitude is a virtual celebration of gratitude for all who profoundly bless our Sisters, ministries, and those we serve.  As with past Galas, all gifts and raffle donations provide much-needed support for our various ministries and outreach, as well as the care of our senior Sisters. To whatever degree you are able to join us for this year’s Gala – prayers, viewing our program, donations, raffles – we truly thank you. Please know that you are counted among our special blessings and remembered in our prayers.
