Contributed photograph

Franciscan sisters take part in prayer at the St. Rose chapel in 1906. The prayer had already been carried out for 28 years at that point.
Right now there is a prayer being held in a small La Crosse chapel.

That sentence would ring true if uttered any day, hour or minute of the last 137 years. This is because the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA), a Catholic religious congregation for women, have made it one of their goals to hold a continual prayer for peace over the past century.
