As sponsors, we publicly identify with, exert appropriate influence on, and provide various levels of support to these ministries. In so doing, we fulfill our responsibility of stewardship for our heritage, mission, and resources.
During her early years in the congregation, Sr. John Celeste Weitzel ministered in education but later studied to be a physical therapist. When she moved from Baltimore to the Aston area in November 2015, she came with a dream—to work with our sisters at Assisi House who were not getting PT for a specific problem.
Foundation Events cogency
2nd Annual Franciscan Night
Join us for the 2nd Annual Franciscan Night at Our Lady of Angels Convent! Spend the evening mingling with the Sisters of St. Francis while sampling delicious food from Caffé Gelato or sit at one of our nine gaming tables to try your hand at Blackjack, Poker, Craps, or Roulette. As part of the entry fee, each guest will be given $50 in chips. Don’t worry if you’re not sure how to play. The experienced dealers will guide you through the rules of the games. While no cash prizes will be awarded to our guests, there are fabulous prize baskets to be won.
Not interested in gaming? No problem! You can take a chance on more than 40 gorgeous raffle baskets as well as our mystery Big Card Draw! Winning can be fun whether through a game or a raffle.
Proceeds from this event will directly benefit our retired sisters in Assisi House in Aston, Pennsylvania, and St. Ann’s Convent in Tacoma, Washington.
