Feast of St. Clare of Assisi
August 11 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am CDT
St. Clare was born on July 16, 1194, in a noble home in Assisi, Italy. Even as a young woman, St. Clare was determined to dedicate herself to the service of God through a life of prayer and helping those most in need. At the age of nineteen, after giving her inheritance to the poor, Clare secretly left her home. She founded the Poor Clare’s, the second branch of the Franciscan family to be established. The Poor Clare’s lived at San Damiano, one of the small churches repaired by St. Francis. Catholic historians believe St. Clare to be the first woman to write a rule, or set of guidelines, for her religious community.
