In celebration of the World Meeting of Families to take place in Philadelphia, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia invite all families to come meet the sisters and to take a tour of Our Lady of Angels Convent in Aston.
The event will be held on Sunday, Feb. 8 from 2 to 4 p.m. and will include a short historical presentation and a tour of the motherhouse followed by light refreshments. Attendees will also have the chance to speak to several sisters and get to know more about the Franciscan way of life.
The tour is being offered in connection with the 2015 Year of Consecrated Life, “Wake up the World,” which Pope Francis promulgated to take place from Nov. 29, 2014, until Feb. 2, 2016, the World Day of Consecrated Life. The purpose of this special year, as stated by the Vatican, is to “make a grateful remembrance of the recent past” while embracing “the future with hope.”
