St. Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved saints in the Catholic Church. Have you ever wanted to know more about this patron saint of animals and the ecology? Then you will want to participate in the “Meet St. Francis of Assisi” workshop at the MCC Annual Assembly on Saturday, Sept. 28 in Jefferson City.
In this workshop, Fr. Thomas Nairn, a Franciscan priest, will discuss the life and vision of St. Francis of Assisi. Fr. Nairn will detail the conversion of St. Francis from a young ambitious son of a wealthy cloth merchant to his becoming the “little poor man” who sought to “rebuild the Church.” This workshop will also explore how the vision of St. Francis has influenced the Church and still has relevance for Catholics today.
