Marian Residence currently has a capacity for 22 retired or infirm sisters. However, these sisters have not necessarily retired. Each sister spends much time in prayer, thus turning Marian Residence into a "Powerhouse of Prayer". All prayer requests are listed in the dining area and in the book in the Adoration Chapel.
Srs. Rita, Elenius, Muriel, Rosemarie, and Coronata
Our sisters continue ministering to people through mail or in person to visitors.
Often they are on the phone talking to and comforting others. Prayer, meals, reading,
exercise, and table games fill their days, as well. The sisters offer their lives of
illness, aches, pains, and diminishments to help fill up what is lacking in the suffering
Body of Christ.
Marian Residence, originally a residence for student nurses, became the home and retirement dwelling for our elderly sisters in August, 1987. The Sisters of St. Francis came to Alliance, Nebraska in 1908 to operate and teach at St. Agnes Academy. We also opened and operated St. Joseph Hospital.
Since then, there have been many changes. Our latest improvement was in 1999 when the old gym was converted into a bright and spacious multi-use area used for dining, Mass, funerals, meetings, and jubilee meals for our sisters' relative and friends
Debbie Zumbahlen was recently honored for 15 years of caring service
with a white buffalo star quilt.
