Sr. Ann Kelley (at left in photo), along with 31 religious from other congregations, was honored for her ministry of teaching in the spirit of St. Bonaventure at the Annual Franciscan Federation Conference. She was recognized for her belief that Franciscan values belong to all people, and she has helped many lay people learn and live the Franciscan values in their own lives. She is a spiritual assistant for a group of secular Franciscans, and also served for five years in program planning and presentations for the St. Francis Institute in Milwaukee. Presently, Sr. Ann is a co-director for our Office of Associate Relationship, and is active as a spiritual director and retreat director. In all of these areas, she guides people as they open themselves to the Spirit and transform their own lives according to God’s plan for them.
Sr. Ann is pictured here with our Sr. Joanne Schatzlein, who was a speaker at the conference.
