Programs Which Foster Dignity and Hope
in the Sacred Process of All Life


Two Locations. One Mission.

Since our founding by the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist in 1972, the Franciscan Life Process Center has assisted in the education, healthy development and cultural enrichment of individuals and communities of people throughout the greater Grand Rapids area and Kent County.

Our Mission:  To promote a relationship with God that brings dignity and hope to the sacred process of all life through programs that assist, educate, enrich and inform.
