Sister Frances ThomasSister Frances Thomas

60-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1960 – Cumberland, Rhode Island

Current Ministry: Ministry of Presence and Hospitality

Motto: Living for God in Christ Jesus


With a grateful heart for the many blessings of my young life, I made final vows in 1968 while the world, the Church, and religious life were in the midst of enormous changes. Eagerly I embraced Vatican II theology, new forms of spirituality, and our community's response to it all.  My ministry, fed by a love for Sacred Scripture and for Earth, focused on helping adults to understand their faith and to share it with others. It is the relationships and deep friendships forged along the way that have made all the difference. For 60 years God has accompanied me through the challenges and joys of life in Mercy; my heart is full of gratitude to this day!
