The Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania installed a new leadership team June 29 in the Queen of Peace Chapel. Bishop Leonard Blair of the Toledo diocese presided at the liturgy. The leadership team for 2008-2012 includes Sister Nancy Linenkugel, councilor; Sister Mary Jon Wagner, assistant congregational minister; Sister Diana Lynn Eckel, congregational minister (re-elected to a second four-year term), and Sister Patricia Gardner, councilor.
The sisters were elected following the Chapter of Affairs meeting held April 6-9 in Sylvania. The chapter is attended by sister delegates from 12 states and the country of Haiti, and its goal is to set policy and direction for the next four years.
