St. Joseph’s Hospital honors Sister Francesca Lowis, SAC on her 60th Jubilee

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. – Sr. Francesca Lowis, SAC was honored by St. Joseph’s Hospital for the celebration of her 60th Jubilee. This represents the anniversary of when she first took her vows to become a Pallottine Missionary Sister in 1960 in Germany.

Sister Francesca was born and raised in Germany. Her education was quite diverse. She attended Elementary School in Germany; High School in England; Undergraduate and Graduate School in Washington, D.C. and St. Louis, Mo. respectively. Her undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education and her graduate degree is in Religion and Education.

Her dream had been to go to Africa, but instead God called her to the United States. She ministered in education and healthcare in Maryland, Missouri, and West Virginia.

She is currently the Vice President of Mission Integration at the hospital where she has served for nearly 25 years. She serves on the Board of Trustees of St. Joseph’s Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, and on the board of the Pallottine Foundation of Buckhannon.

“We are extremely grateful to Sister Francesca for her dedication to the healing ministry of St. Joseph’s Hospital,” said Skip Gjolberg, President of St. Joseph’s Hospital. “She serves as a wonderful example of the hospital’s mission to each of us every day.”
