Like a small seed hidden in the earth during winter, LCI’s new students have begun the Spring 2024 semester. Three young women – two from Lithuania and one from Croatia – have arrived at the Kartause and joined the more than 200 Franciscan University students from the USA.

First impressions are that Americans are very friendly, Austria is very beautiful, and many students are very loud…!

The coming months of life at the Kartause promise to bring irreplaceable experiences of growth in faith, friendships, and love of God.
