Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity
Holy Name Province
The areas of service where our sisters live out their mission:
In 1997, the Center of Renewal began to focus entirely on the ministry of hospitality, and discontinued its retreat programs. In this new life, the center has been well used. Many groups choosing the Center have been religious in nature and have chosen the facility for retreat purposes. The Center has a separate home on the Web.
Through many years of active ministry, Sisters have served God's people in various areas of need. As they advance in age, the Sisters continue to serve, whether in active ministry or in prayer ministry.

Although our sisters have served as educators in dozens of schools, two have special significance as sponsored institutions: Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart (SHA) and Stella Niagara Education Park (SNEP.) Visit their websites at Sacred Heart and Stella Niagara.
