Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity select Katie Nelson’s “You Are the Water” as their June song of the month.

Talking to our current and prospective candidates in their 20’s, we wanted to know the best way to reach young women interested in knowing more about us, and possibly joining us

The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity will feature Christian singer-songwriter Katie Nelson’s version of “You Are The Water” as their June song of the month. It will be available throughout June as a free download on the Franciscanized World page of htpp://http://www.fscc-calledtobe.org.

Each month the page features a new song and image for spiritual reflection, designed to invite participation and reflection from visitors, in particular young women discerning their call in life. “Seeing the world as Saints Francis and Clare did - realistically, compassionately, finding good and holy possibility in the substance and culture of everyday life. “

“You Are The Water”, taken from Katie Nelson’s “Do You Really Know Him” CD. is one her favorites. Nelson enthused that “…I love this song so much. Every time I sing it I honestly picture a steady stream of sparkling water being dumped into my soul.”

"Talking to our current and prospective candidates in their 20’s, we wanted to know the best way to reach young women interested in knowing more about us, and possibly joining us,” Sr. Julie Ann said. “We want to present our life as a viable option. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music.”

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).
