The Franciscans carry out the mission of the Church through four apostolates: Eucharistic Adoration, service to the poor, Evangelization, and teaching.
Sr. Torres received a Bachelor of Arts in Theology at Loyola University Chicago, a Master of Divinity at Mundelein Seminary, and a Masters in Arts in Teaching from Dominican University.

At this month's Discipleship Night, Thy Kingdom Come, Sr. Alicia will be speaking on the power of prayer and how to remain prayerful in your daily lives after the Easter season ends.
Due to the auxiliary bishop's ordination being held at the Cathedral, this event will take place across the street at Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church. Parking will be available in the CTK parking deck as normal, but please stay tuned for more updates on social media as we approach the date :)
