Covid-19 Update: Our Response

We find ourselves in a unique and at times, stressful place.

The Franciscan Life Process Center staff joins everyone as we “stay in place” in our statewide effort for safety and good health. As we do so, we are staying in touch with all those we serve in an effort to make sure peoples’ needs are being met.

We are offering on-line sessions for our Counseling and Music Therapy clients/contracts. We are also rescheduling our Art Workshops and the groups who come to use our meeting rooms and retreat facilities. Our Fertility Education instructors are offering some of their introductory classes virtually, and we continue to plan for the further developments of our land that are scheduled for later this year.

Following Governor Whitmer’s guidelines, we anticipate reopening both of our campuses when the “stay in place” order ends. Please continue to check our website, Facebook page and YouTube (Music Therapy-FLPC) for updates and uplifting musical activities. If you would consider supporting us through a financial gift to assist us at this time, please note the donation button.

In the words of St. Clare, we send you our heartfelt prayer:
“I bless you as much as I can and more than I can and what I cannot, I ask God to do in You.”

Sister Colleen Ann Nagle, FSE
Director
