Pope Francis visits Assisi

Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Friday October 4th.                                                                                          

St. Francis of Assisi School works hard to build an educational foundation that ensures our students can succeed in the world, creating worldly value to generate wealth that can be shared with the Church to do its work for the poor.

The Pope's appeal, made in the central Italian town of Assisi where his namesake Saint Francis lived in the 12th century, comes amid a drive by Francis to create a church focused on the simple values.

"There is a danger that threatens everyone in the church, all of us. The danger of worldliness. It leads us to vanity, arrogance and pride," said Francis.
