WELCOME!
ince our founding by the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist in 1974, the Franciscan Life Process Center has assisted in the education, healthy development and cultural enrichment of individuals and communities of people throughout the greater Grand Rapids area and Kent County.

We believe in the sacredness of all life and therefore in the inherent value of each individual human life. We acknowledge in each person a fundamental desire and potential for personal growth and accept the development of each person as a unique organic process.

The Franciscan Life Process Center of Lowell, Michigan, was established by the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist to provide programs as part of the Franciscan Life Center Network, Inc. of Meriden, Connecticut. In Fall 2011, the Grand Rapids Campus was opened at 654 Davis St. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504. Music instruction, music therapy, counseling, spiritual direction and retreats are offered there.

The Franciscan Life Process Center is a member of the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce.
