PEORIA Ill.- The sisters, also known as the Heading Avenue Franciscans, have served for 128 years in the Peoria and Springfield Dioceses in the ministries of spirituality, education and care of the poor and elderly.
In 1995, Rolan Johnson gave the Sister of St. Francis of the Immaculate Conception exclusive permission to use his unique Christmas Cards for a fundraiser. With the gracious consent of the Johnson family, the collectible series continues in their father’s memory.
“There is a Peace” is the title of Rolan Johnson’s 1985 Christmas card and the name of this special 25th Annual Limited Edition 2019 Christmas Ornament.
The 2019 ornament is approximately 3″x5″, two sided, and encased in a 24kt gold-plated brass frame. It is gift-boxed with a numbered certificate of authenticity. All proceeds benefit the Sisters’ Retirement Fund.
Ornaments are available at their Motherhouse 2408 W. Heading Ave, West Peoria, IL. 61604.
