Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Christmas Hymn download

The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature a performance of “I Wonder As I Wander” as their Advent vocation meditation. Filmed at St. Clement Catholic parish in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, it is available as a free download at

The performance is a meditative interpretation by Sarah Gardner from Washington, one of the Franciscan Sisters new postulants, accompanied by Sr. Marsaia Kaster, from the Franciscan Sisters’ Holy Family Conservatory. Many of the lyrics are illustrated by the stained glass windows of St. Clement, which originated from the Meyer studios of Munich.

The Franciscanized World page and the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have been featured in Time Magazine’s profile of Catholic religious orders innovatively utilizing the Internet. The site invites visitors to discern the world as Saints Francis and Clare did: realistically, compassionately, finding holy possibility in the substance and culture of everyday life. Each month, specially selected songs and images are chosen for spiritual reflection from particular young women discerning their call in life.

“We want to present our life as a viable option for them. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music.” says Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations

Established in 1869, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in 13 U.S. dioceses (Green Bay, Superior, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Tucson, Honolulu, Chicago, Marquette, Jackson, Lincoln, Omaha, Columbus and Steubenville).
