Who Are Franciscan Companions?



The Spokane Companions gather for a faith-sharing meeting: (left to right) Betsy Frazier, Donna Hargrave, Jane Weigelt, Pat Shanks, Pat Lynch, Christine Alexanian, Marion Robinson, Arleene Wood, Sister Monica Bauer

The companions are christian women and men who share in and live out the spirit and mission of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia within their own vocation and lifestyle.

Our companions are contemporary examples of God’s loving providence, enabling the journey to continue.
