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.
Many of our sisters trace their introduction to the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia to their educational history and Sr. Eileen Valerie Kulacz is no exception. However, for most sisters that introduction involved a student/teacher relationship. In Sr. Eileen’s case the connection grew out of a student/student relationship that began when she was a earning a degree in computer business systems.
The Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia have sole responsibility for these ministries. They are not separately incorporated. Ministries may have advisory boards which include Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia as well as lay women and men.
