POCATELLO, ID (04-19-2015) - The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist welcomed the Bishop of Boise to the Family Life Center on Saturday morning, April 18, 2015. The Most Reverend Peter F. Christensen, installed as Bishop of Boise last December 17th, paid his first visit to the Center where he joined the Community for Morning Prayer, celebrated Mass in the Sisters' chapel and shared breakfast with the Sisters. The Mass was offered for the repose of the soul of Cardinal George of Chicago and for the persons attending the Vocation Weekend at the motherhouse in Meriden, Connecticut.

The Sisters offered the Bishop an open invitation to return and were grateful for the time they shared together.
