The Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia hold the health and safety of not only our sisters and coworkers but all who have the opportunity to visit us in any of our facilities—Our Lady of Angels Convent; Franciscan Spiritual Center, Aston; and Assisi House, our retirement community—with great care and concern. In light of the news in the past few weeks concerning the Coronavirus, we have had to make some difficult decisions regarding visits to our facilities. It is important to note these decisions are precautionary and at this time none of our staff or sisters have been diagnosed with the virus. We are taking the lead of the CDC and implementing immediately the following:

  • Visits to our motherhouse, retirement home, work spaces, and spiritual center are currently restricted to no outside visitors. If you have a particular need, please contact our operator by dialing (610) 459-4125 for information.
  • Eucharistic Liturgies at Our Lady of Angels Convent and Assisi House are also closed to the public.
  • All Aston spiritual center/community programs, meetings, etc. have been postponed until at least the end of March.

We will continue to pray for those infected by this virus, for those who have lost loved ones, and for an end to this pandemic. May God Bless us All!
