Sister Francis Marie
Hear the Story of Sister Francis Marie’s Journey

A Deeply Catholic Nun Found Her Way Back to Rome


Every person travels their own individual journey to Jesus, often with help from friends.

Sister Francis Marie traveled one especially unique path. She grew up Catholic, then entered an order of religious sisters. But the community lost its focus and broke its link with Rome.

Eventually Sister Francis Marie and others realized that critical elements of faith were missing, including their link to the Pope. A decade ago she and other nuns left the separatist community and rejoined the Church, with the support of Spokane’s then-Bishop William Skylstad. Sister Francis Marie now is head of the community of Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church

She will tell of her own faith journey at the Tuesday, Dec. 12 Catholics at Work breakfast. How they found their way back to the Church is a unique story, yet has elements of faith common to every person’s search for true community with Jesus.

Major impacts on her life, says Sister Francis Marie, include two powerful saints, Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope John Paul II.

Today, working with 70 children in a Catholic parish youth center, she remains focused on Jesus as the eternal priest, after having worked at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in Berkeley for eight years.

The Tuesday December 12, Catholics@Work program takes place at Crow Canyon Country Club, beginning at 7 a.m., preceded by Mass at 6:30. It ends at 8:15.
