Once unsure, sisters now secure at Assisi Heights

By Kelley Luckstein

As early as 6 a.m. on a typical morning, some members of the Sisters of St. Francis go to pray at the Lourdes Chapel at Assisi Heights, flicking on lights to illuminate the vaulted ceilings, colorful mosaics, and elegant stained glass windows.

 

The sisters questioned their future at their motherhouse not too long ago, perhaps even leaving the Rochester landmark as their numbers continue to dwindle.
