St. Francis recognized water as a precious resource and inspires us today in our relationship with our ‘sister’. From our early foundation years in Wisconsin, our Franciscan Community has enjoyed the shimmering streams of the Manitowoc River, the gentle ripples of Silver Lake or the grander waves of Lake Michigan in our close proximity.
Canticle of the Creatures expresses well the Franciscan respect for Sister Water that sustains all of life.Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Water who is so useful, precious, and pure….
