Arlene and Jerry Mancheski

Arlene and Jerry Mancheski

"Togetherness" describes who Arlene and Jerry are to each other, to their family of six children, 14 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, to Corpus Christi Parish in Sturgeon Bay, and to the Franciscan Sisters and Associates.

Over the years, Arlene and Jerry have continued the unique and amazing family practice of having the rosary prayed in their family room with all the children and grandchildren three times each week of Lent.

In addition to gathering the family for Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, they also host a huge summer bash. The fire pit flames burn brightly and long on that eventful summer night.

What are Associates?

The Associate Relationship is open to men and women who want to:

  • deepen their relationship
  • with God
  • partner with the Sisters in prayer and Gospel mission
  • model a new vision of community in their lives
  • strive to live Gospel values in their daily lives
