Who was Clare of Assisi?
Merely some inconsequential founder of a group of nuns? The first woman to write and receive approval of a religious rule for other women? One of Francis’ most faithful companions? A valiant woman who held obstinately to what she believed in while dealing with Popes, Emperors and Princesses? Let’s investigate her life together on Monday, August 10th at 10:00 A. M.
with Sr. Nancy Celaschi, OSF
School Sisters of St. Francis, US Province

FACILITATOR: Sr. Nancy Celaschi, a member of the US Province, and former provincial secretary and councilor, has lived more than half of her religious life in Rome, including two terms as general secretary and councilor. She taught in high schools in Pennsylvania and Texas and later served for eight years on the staff of the English language edition of L''Osservatore Romano in Vatican City. She also served as Executive Director and later as Director of Formation and Publication of an international Franciscan organization. With an M.A in Francisan Studies from St. Bonaventure University and a working knowledge of five European languages, she has translated many pieces for the Vatican and for various Franciscan publications. She now enjoys what is definitely her most fun ministry yet, accompanying pilgrims to Rome and her second home, the city of Francis and Clare.
