Sister Frances DeSalle, formerly Sister Renault, entered religious life from St. John the Baptist Church in Monaca, Pa. She recalls that Sisters Frances Romana and Floretta, Sisters of Divine Providence, helped to influence her decision to become a Sister.
An educator for almost 41 years, Sister Frances taught throughout the Diocese of Pittsburgh, in Ohio, Michigan, California, and Arizona. Presently, she is in prayer and general service ministry at Providence Heights.
Sister Frances says that her aim in religious life is to know God more intimately, to love him more ardently, and to follow him more closely all the days of her life. Describing herself as thoughtful, loving, caring, kind, and understanding, she enjoys playing bingo, watching mysteries and sports, and helping people.
