Barb Knauf welcomed as Sister

Candidate Barbara Knauf began her formal relationship as a novice with the SSJ-TOSF during a ceremony June 26 at St. Joseph Motherhouse Chapel.

She was joined in celebration by sisters, associates, family and friends during the Rite of Reception into the Novitiate at the Stevens Point, WI, motherhouse.

From August 2013 until May 2014, Sr. Barb will spend a canonical year with other Franciscan novices in St. Louis, MO.

Congratulations and continued blessings as you move forward on your journey, Sr. Barb!
