Sylvania Franciscan Sisters of St. Francis OF Sylvania, Ohio Development Report WINTER 2014

Respecting God’s Gift of Creation

St. Francis was called to rebuild the church. Sylvania Franciscan Sister Rosine Sobczak heard the call to help “Mother Earth.” For 25 years she has been in the forefront of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania’s stand on “care for creation.” During that time, hundreds of students and adults have been exposed to the wonders of nature and have learned what we can do to make sure we save planet Earth for future generations. Sister Rosine started the Life Lab at Lourdes University in 1988 as a way to introduce all, but especially inner city youth, to the beauty of nature, because many of them weren’t exposed to it by virtue of where they lived. She targeted pre-school to eighth grade students with one-day field trips that focused on an appreciation of plants and animals and how they interact with each other in nature. A year later, she started a Summer Science Camp program that offered students from fifth Mission Statement through tenth grade one-week programs on a variety of subjects from the life cycle of butterflies, and the crayfish in Ten Mile Creek that runs through the Motherhouse grounds to how to plant a Called like Francis of Assisi garden, grow your own fresh vegetables and live sustainably. to live the Gospel in joyful “Young children are the salvation of Earth,” said Sister Rosine. “We need to get them outside and away from all those computer games so they can experience nature up close and personal. If they servanthood among aren’t interested in how Earth works, they won’t value it and want to preserve it when they grow up. all people, the Sisters of If that happens, we might as well shut the lights off, because it won’t be there for anybody’s great St. Francis of Sylvania, grandchildren to enjoy.” Ohio, as messengers of In 1990, Sister Rosine co-founded SAVE (Science Alliance for Valuing the Environment, Inc.) peace, commit themselves because she was concerned people had lost their connection with nature and were negatively impacting the environment. SAVE’s goal is to foster awareness and respect for the link between ecology and to works that reverence spirituality. The group believes the preservation of human dignity, embrace planet Earth is in many hands because we are the the poor and marginalized, caretakers of God’s gift of creation. Since SAVE started, hundreds of people have heard lectures and respect the gift of ranging from how bats impact nature and creating all creation. agriculture that is sustainable to what makes the ‘Great Lakes great.’ Each year SAVE acknowledges the work of organizations, companies, individuals and schools that are ecologically friendly because, when people who have shared values get together, disasters can be avoided and the beauty of nature can be preserved.

Earth, who sustains and governs us, producing fruit, flowers and herbs.

Message from the Congregational Minister

Franciscan Spirituality Blooms with New Opportunity Dear Friends,

Spring is not far off and, at the same time, our Church calls us to the season of Lent, a time of renewal, reconciliation and growth. This is a time to spread the ‘Good News’, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We are given many opportunities of spiritual growth, to change through prayer, fasting, and other means of personal conversion. A very important response to our mission personally, and in the spirit of sharing, is our Franciscan Spirituality. In the last issue of this publication, I shared with you about the Sylvania Franciscan Village and the goal to invite God’s people to walk with us and share in our spirit, on our campus, in our programs, celebrations and ministry. I want to introduce you to the opportunities offered by our newly renovated Regina Spirituality and Conference Center. This center expands our Sylvania Franciscan experiences which currently include: daily Mass at Queen of Peace Chapel, hermitages which provide a contemplative experience, reflective walks around this spiritual environment to visit the shrines and the prayer garden, and share the beauty of God’s gift of nature. The Regina Spirituality and Conference Center offers rooms for conferences, reflection, prayer, small meetings, retreats, spiritual direction and provides overnight accommodations, including private rooms with full baths. Our director plans, facilitates, and supports opportunities to deepen individual and group spirituality activities through multi-experiences. For specific information, please contact Sister Joan Jurski,, telephone 419-824-3528, or visit our website, The Sylvania Franciscan Village, through the Sisters of St. Francis, Lourdes University and Sylvania Franciscan Health, offer many programs and conferences to enhance our growth. We continue to invite you to Village with us. Another hallmark of our Franciscan life is our gratitude. We are grateful to you for your presence in our lives, and for your gifts which energize our ministries and renew our buildings. We thank God for each of you and appreciate your willingness to help us continue our mission and ministry. In the Peace of Francis and Clare,


Sister Mary Jon Wagner, OSF

(continued from cover)

In recent years, Sister Rosine has introduced an idea called the “Cosmic Walk”. Through the work of scientists, we have learned how the universe has evolved over the last 13.7 billion years. We are now entering a phase where humans will consciously shape the next phase of our evolution. They can choose advancement through co-operation and co-creation or self-destruction through separateness and competition. The choice is ours. How will we decide? “There has been an explosion of scientific understanding of evolution,” said Sister Rosine. “The discovery of the Higgs particle, sometimes known as the God particle, directly connects human beings to the beginning of the Fireball or the “Great Mystery,” as I like to call it. These are exciting times, important times. We can destroy our life support systems or we can move forward in a hope-filled future of immeasurable possibilities.” Sister Rosine says she is glad to follow in St. Francis’ footsteps and spread the message of her patron saint’s love for all of creation. Her biggest accomplishments have been raising the awareness of God’s continuing hand in the wonders of the Cosmos and helping people better understand what our Franciscan focus is today, so we can be more sensitive to preserving the Earth and its resources. Her biggest hope is that enough of us understand the message of our ‘Great Work’ as humans in this evolving 13.7 billion year epic of God’s creation. As Franciscans, she hopes we learn from Luke 12:49: “I have come to light a fire on the earth. How I wish the blaze was ignited!” We are truly living in exciting times and Sister Rosine is glad to be a part of them.

Bethany House Marks 30 Years Serving Victims of Domestic Violence

Bethany House, a long-term shelter for victims of domestic violence and a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, is observing 30 years of serving the needs of women and children in the greater Toledo area. Founded in 1984 by Sylvania Franciscan Sister Rose Therese Lange, Bethany House is one of only a handful of facilities in the country that provides long-term, transitional housing for victims of domestic abuse. Most shelters offer emergency housing for a month or two, while residents of Bethany House can stay for as long as two years. In addition to apartment-style transitional housing, residents receive counseling, education and support services. They also have access to community, legal and social service resources. Residents learn parenting and job skills and some get cars supplied by a local foundation so they have transportation to get to and from work. Children learn how to identify with their feelings and minimize any sense of shame, isolation, guilt or victimization. The staff tries to reduce stress and provide a sense of normalcy for the children through fun, recreational activities and events. “Bethany House is a very special place that offers life-saving and life-transforming services during a very dangerous and vulnerable time for victims of domestic violence and their children,” said Deidra Lashley, executive director of Bethany House. “I feel honored to be able to follow in the footsteps of Sister Rose Therese and continue to carry out her vision to meet the needs of survivors of abuse.” In 2013 Bethany House served 31 adults and 48 children and the average length of stay was seven-and-a-half months. The need for safe, free, long-term transitional shelter has not diminished in the 30 years since Bethany opened its doors and has always had a waiting list for its services. “When Bethany House was founded, there were only three long-term shelters in the United States for abused women and their children,” said Sylvania Franciscan Sister Faith Cosky, who was executive director from 1990 to 1997. “While ministering there, I came to realize that the children were the “second victims”. We worked hard to make it a supportive environment. We found joy in celebrating birthdays and holidays, and trips to Chuck E. Cheese’s for good report cards.” In addition to serving their own residents, staff provides education and training on domestic violence for community groups and homeless shelters and serves as a public advocate for the safety of women and children across northwest Ohio. Bethany House stays in contact with former residents to ensure their continued emotional and physical well-being.

It costs about $25 a day, per resident, to provide safe, long-term transitional housing for victims of domestic violence. Bethany House operates through funding from individuals, private foundations, government agencies and organizations. To donate, volunteer, or for more information, go to

Sister David (Frances Rose) died January 31, 2014 in Rosary Care Center, where she had lived for the last 13 years. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1918, she entered the Sylvania Franciscans in1932 and made her final vows in 1941. She celebrated her 75th jubilee in 2013 and spent most of her religious life in education, teaching for 37 years in Ohio and Michigan and an additional 11 years as a principal. She worked in administration at Lourdes University for five years and in the business department for the Sisters for six years before moving to Rosary Care where she was a minister of prayer. Sister David enjoyed working with children and parents during her time as a teacher and principal. She taught everything from history and economics to the humanities and ethics. Her Polish heritage was always evident. Even in recent years she still read and translated letters from her family and friends in Poland. Stolat!

Helping Stop Modern-Day Slavery Human trafficking, commonly known as 21st century slavery, is the fastest growing criminal industry in America. Sister Geraldine Nowak, who ministers in Justice, Peace, and the Integrity of Creation for the Sylvania Franciscans, is actively involved with a local organization created by Sisters from four women’s religious communities in the Toledo area to educate and advocate for victims of this crime. STOP! (Stop Trafficking of Persons) was formed in 2006 by the Sylvania and Tiffin Franciscans, Notre Dame and Ursuline Sisters as part of their commitment to nonviolence and respect for the inherent dignity of each person. Their ministry includes conducting workshops to educate social workers, counselors, pastors and people who work in the hotel industry, about this insidious activity. They conduct monthly talks to church groups, schools, hospitals, civic organizations, and women’s groups. In January, Sister Geraldine helped conduct a prayer service as part of Human Trafficking Awareness month. Almost 100 people attended the annual service at the Historic Church of St. Patrick’s in downtown Toledo. It had a global perspective; candles were lit for the seven continents in the world, for the almost 21 million victims of human trafficking. “People often think we are involved with human trafficking for political reasons,” said Sister Geraldine. “We do these things because they address a core theme of Catholic social teaching—life and dignity of the human person—which is the basis of building a just society and living lives of holiness among the challenges of modern society. This prayer service provided a place and a time for folks to come together to ask God’s blessing and assistance with this sensitive issue.”

More than 300 people attended the 14th annual Franciscan Gala on September 28, 2013. Held in the Franciscan Center on the grounds of the Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania and Lourdes University, this year’s event included a first-time raffle, silent auction, a delicious dinner and an evening of music and dancing. Marcie Black won the top raffle prize of $5,000; Valerie Scott took home $3,000 and Daniel Kuna, $2,000. Because of the hard work of committee members Norene Drewicz, Rose Geswein, Karen Hensley, Penny Marks, Mary Pope, Helen Pyles, and Ann-Marie Tracz, the Gala was a success, netting its best ever $106,300. Sister Carol Ann Grace, director of development for the Sylvania Franciscans, expressed her gratitude on behalf of the Sisters to all their partners in ministry, benefactors and friends for making the Gala such a special evening. Fr. Robert Wilhelm, chaplain of Queen of Peace Chapel, and Sylvania business leader Joseph Nachtrab were honored with the St. Clare and St. Francis awards for modeling the Franciscan values in their daily lives.

Mark your calendar and join the Sisters for the 15th Annual Franciscan Gala on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at the Franciscan Center for an evening of fine food, festivities, friendship and dancing. Contact Andrea Schraw for more information, 419-824-3624,
