Anna’s Place is a Franciscan Hospitality Center sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia and named in honor of their foundress, Maria Anna Bachmann. The staff at Anna’s Place offer a welcoming atmosphere to the people in and around Chester, Pennsylvania, as they gather for activities that promote growth in mind, body, heart and spirit. In the Spirit of Jesus and in the tradition of St. Francis, Clare of Assisi and Anna Bachmann we welcome all.
AND THEN, what has been Anna’s Place for the past ten years no longer was the greatest need for our guests. As we walked with our sisters and brothers at the west end of Chester, we discovered there was a need for food, toiletries, and household supplies. We never thought we would be providing almost two hundred bags a week…especially since we began with next to nothing, yet God keeps providing in the generosity and faithful goodness of so many who stop by with groceries, toiletries, gift cards and donations. It certainly has taken the Story of the Fish and Loaves and brings it to life every day at Anna’s Place!
We hope you will take a few minutes to look at our website and see the faces of those blessed-blessed to give and blessed to receive.
