Sr. Eileen Hennessy’s connection with the Sisters of St. Francis is very definitely a “home-based” one. The year Eileen was born, her sister, Sr. Kyran, entered our congregation. “I learned a lot about the community from letters and photos from her over the years,” Eileen explained.
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.
