FSPAs SHARE FRANCSICAN EDUCATION TRADITION
LA CROSSE, Wis.—For more than 130 years, the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration have been leaders in education within the La Crosse community. From founding, serving, and teaching in area grade, middle, and high schools to starting, in 1890, what became Viterbo University.
Join Marlene Weisenbeck, FSPA, and chair of the Viterbo Board of Directors, and Celesta Day, FSPA for their presentation, "Franciscan Teachers in History: The Franciscan Intellectual Tradition," on Tuesday, March 5, from 7-9 p.m. in the Franciscan Spirituality Center. The two will reflect on the educational foundation of the Franciscan order as well as share stories from the lives of famous Franciscans in the academic tradition.
The talk is open to all members of the Viterbo and La Crosse communities and is sponsored by the Mission Effectiveness Committee. The event is free and a reception follows.
