Welcome Sister Rose

Enter Sister Rose Messingschlager, CDP!


Those initials stand for her religious community, the Congregation of Divine Providence, which began in France in the 1700’s and has its U.S. provincial house in northern Kentucky.

Sister Rose comes to us with a distinguished background. She has an MEd. from Xavier University in Cincinnati and a Licentiate in Pastoral Missiology from the Gregorian University in Rome. She worked with Jesuits at our mission on the neighboring Pine Ridge Reservation for nine years and then served as the Diocesan Director for Native Ministry in Duluth, Minnesota for twenty-six years.

When asked, Sr. Rose how she felt about coming to St. Francis Mission, she said: “Coming to be with the Lakota is like returning home after twenty-eight years!” Truly it is Divine Providence that has brought Sr. Rose to us at this time! We are happy you are here.
