Contact: Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, 920-682-7728 sjulieann@fscc-calledtobe.org


MANITOWOC, Wisc., Jan. 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- Throughout January, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity's "Franciscanized World" page – http://www.fscc-calledtobe.org/living.asp features a streaming download of John Michael Talbot's "I Will Listen", accompanied by an image of the Jordan River, near Jesus' assumed baptism site.

"Franciscanized World" invites visitors see the world as Saints Francis and Clare did - realistically, compassionately, finding good and holy possibility in the substance and culture of everyday life.


Each month, specially selected songs and images are chosen for spiritual reflection from particular young women discerning their call in life. Franciscanized World was recently featured in Time Magazine's profile of Catholic religious orders innovatively utilizing the Internet.


"We want to present our life as a viable option for them. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music." says Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations


Established in 1869, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in 11 U.S. dioceses (Green Bay, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Tucson, Honolulu, Chicago, Marquette, Jackson, Omaha, Columbus and Steubenville).
