Welcome to the redesigned website of St. Francis Mission. I hope that you will find it easy to navigate and that you will come back frequently. In redesigning the site we hope to keep in better touch with our supporters and those who are new to the Mission. So many good things are happening here and we want our various programs tell you about those things on a regular basis. We also want to share with you the challenges that are part of living in one of the poorest counties in the United States. We know that we can face those challenges only with your help and that your prayers for and with us are essential.
The Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota is part of what is known as “fly-over country.” Besides that, we are an often forgotten and ignored part of that country. We hope that by presenting frequent updates with news, photos, and videos, people will feel better connected to the Sicangu Lakota People and St. Francis Mission.
That’s our hope and our prayer. Mitakuye Oyasin! All My Relatives!
