Necrology / Genealogy

We, the living members, stand upon the shoulders of our Deceased Members who have gone before us.  We give praise and thanks to God for all they have done in living the Gospel message in their ministries, in community living, and in their example and witness to all of God’s people.  They are honored and reverenced daily in prayer.

Their names are hallowed on the Deceased Members Boards located near the main entrance of Queen of Angels Chapel at the Motherhouse of the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart, Frankfort, Illinois.
