"O Come, O Come, Emmanuel"

Let us rejoice in the Advent musical experience of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” performed by FSPA Partners in Mission Josiah Dix, Marcus Eber and Oliver Nicks. They recently gathered at St. Rose Convent’s Mary of the Angels Chapel in La Crosse, Wisconsin, to share their vocal and instrumental talents. Join us in the celebration as we wait for the Son of God to appear.

Sounds of peace, healing, prayer: Sister Malinda's harp

In celebration of the Advent season, we share her album "Emmanuel," and offer a full playlist of Sister Malinda's albums, including "Instrument of Peace," "Music of Healing," "Peaceful Journey" and "Prayer Impressions," for you to experience.

In "Waiting and changing when you really don't know what's coming," Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration Julia Walsh finds herself doing just that. "Hope is an active virtue," she shares, "and I hope to allow things to unfold and gracefully accept change as it comes."

Christmas throwback

Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration Lucy Ann Meyer and Marlene Weisenbeck took a horse and carriage ride to Family and Children's Center with holiday season donations in La Crosse, Wisconsin, in 2009.

Earlier in December, candle luminaries lit the way for a peaceful, mile-long hike, filled with Advent-themed prayer, on FSPA land on St. Joseph Ridge.
