Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis


On Thursday, September 2, 2021, the Provincial Chapter of Election of the German Province officially began with the theme: "Enlarge the Space for your Tent...“ (Isaiah 54:2)

Sister M. Margarete Ulagar, the General Superior, presided over the chapter of elections. Father Hans Bernd Köppen moderated the process of chapter and Father Michael Plattig
O.Carm. served the chapter as the Spiritual Director. 

On September 8, 2021, on the Feast of the Nativity of our Blessed Mother Mary, the 22 chapter delegates elected the new German provincial leadership team:  

Sister M. Diethilde Bövingloh - Provincial Superior

Sister Marianne Kamlage - Provincial Vicaress

Sister Leemary Sebastian - Provincial Councilor

Sister M. Cäcilia Musekamp - Provincial Councilor

To each of these Sisters, we extend our congratulations and prayerful support for accepting the call to serve in Provincial Leadership role.

Sister M. Margarete noted that it is surely a beautiful sign of Divine Providence that the election of the Sisters of the new Provincial Leadership falls on the feast of the nativity of our Mother Mary. We commend the newly elected Sisters to the guidance of the Blessed Mother, who may accompany them and lead them in the footsteps of the Lord.
