Announcing the first Sylvania Franciscan Virtual Gala

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in Our Community

Of all the things that have been cancelled this year, the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania hope that caring for others is not one of them.

The annual Sylvania Franciscan Gala will be virtual this year, and anyone can join us on Wednesday, October 14 and Thursday, October 15, 2020, from 7:00–9:00 p.m. (EST).

The Virtual Gala features fun video messages from the Sisters of St. Francis, a “Jeoparty” game with Sylvania Franciscan contestants, a few words from Gala sponsors, and a silent auction (bidding until 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 15)! Silent auction items include a weekend at Mackinac Island, a week in Cancun, a hand-painted shawl by Sister Sharon Havelak, a “September 11, 2001” signed print by Walter Chapman, and much more.

Registration is free. Those interested in supporting the Sisters of St. Francis and their ministries can register by using the following link:

The Gala proceeds benefit all ministries in which Sylvania Franciscan Sisters are active. Sisters support others every day all year through outreach ministries in seven states and eight dioceses.
