School Sisters of St. Francis Panhandle Franciscans

Panhandle, TX

The School Sisters of St. Francis are hosting "Come and See Reflection Weekends" in October and December for women discerning the religious life. Retreatant's will have time to bask in God's love by following our prayer schedule with a listening heart in prayer, adoration, the Divine Office, and the Rosary. This is an opportunity to experience our Franciscan way of life, our apostolate, and have some fun too, with plenty of time to talk with Sisters and ask questions.
