Join us as we travel with St. Francis.
St. Francis of Assisi took seriously the call to follow in Jesus’s footsteps. His conversion launched him into preaching the Good News both near and far. Francis traveled the local region and ventured farther to share the Good News. His desire for solitude sent him into the mountains and caves around Assisi. Church business took him to Rome, and the impulse for evangelization took him to the Holy Land. In 1217, St. Francis was inspired to send Franciscans to all the world. In this workshop, we will look at some of St. Francis’s travels.
