2014 Franciscan Federation Honoree

We are pleased to announce that Sr. Theresa Renninger was chosen as the 2014 Franciscan Federation honoree ,as she exemplifies the criteria of the conference theme, “Cultivating Kindom Power” as someone who: 

  • * Creates a sense of hospitality/inclusivity

  • * Works toward widening our circles of compassion to include those persons who are often   
      overlooked or excluded

  • * Lives out of a deliberate contemplative awareness that embraces all creation

  •  

  • Her Sisters had this to say about Sr. Theresa:

Young and old and all creation benefit from the life of Sister Theresa Renninger. Each morning she volunteers at St. Mary’s School, Avilla, Indiana, and extends her warmth to the staff and students. With a heart for those who struggle, she tutors students who find learning difficult, hoping to broaden their potential to learn more.

Too often the elderly are overlooked or marginalized, but not at Presence Sacred Heart Nursing Home where Sister Theresa Renninger is found every afternoon. There she welcomes all with a warm smile and a hearty “How are you doin?” Daily she sees it as her “sacred duty” to make the rounds and check up on everyone. Although pushing past 80 years herself, she wheels residents to and from events with ease. Nothing is too difficult for her. The Activity Director counts on her as she serves coffee, calls numbers for Bingo, and assures that each resident is feeling happy, content and loved.

Her contemplative stance is reflected in her great love for God’s creation. Recycling is a passion of hers and she demonstrates her reverence for the earth by making sure nothing goes into a landfill that could be recycled. At our congregation’s vacation cottage she welcomes the yearly challenge to enhance the beauty of God’s creation by preparing and maintaining beautiful gardens and lawns.

The Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart are proud to affirm and applaud our Sister Theresa who truly cultivates “Kindom power”!
