Feast of Saint Francis

Today, 4th October is the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi and we send greetings to our Franciscan brothers and sisters across the world who follow the way of this humble saint.  Today we recall our Franciscan roots – Angela Merici, our foundress was a Franciscan Tertiary before she gathered the first group of the Company of Saint Ursula in Brescia, Italy in November 1535.
