Blessed Franz Jägerstätter is the patron of our fraternity in Flagstaff. Learn more about this inspiring man.
Our gatherings have been canceled and our council meetings have been held via Zoom (see photo below) due to Covid-19. But we are still reaching out to one another and finding creative ways to be 'in fraternity'. A few of our Franciscan sisters and brothers have been sewing masks for those in the health professions and have also shared those masks with us. So thoughtful!

Artist: Nicolo Liberatore. Late 15th century. This picture of Francis and Clare is part of a larger piece entitled, "The Banner of the Plague."
Artist: Tiberio Ranieri di Diotallevi, also known as Tiberio di Assisi. Painted in 1506. It is in the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi.
This picture of St. Francis is a fresco in the lower church of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi. It was painted by Cimibue, also known as Cenni di Pepo, who lived from 1240 - 1302. Supposedly, Francis' nephew described Francis to the artist, thus influencing the facial features.
