He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
– St. Francis of Assisi
Saint Francis began his ministry with an emphasis on loving all God’s creatures to the best of his ability. He modeled what has come to define the Franciscan Spirit—a personal faith, a servant’s heart, and willing hands to help those in need.
At the Franciscan Store, we strive to embody Saint Francis’ teachings by offering a variety of spiritual resources in the form of prayer cards, books, and religious articles. It is our hope that the prayer cards, works of art, and religious articles offered for sale will be a visible reminder of the Francis’ life and of Christ’s call to love and serve others. All religious articles are hand made in Assisi and all of our books and religious cards have been written or designed by Franciscan Friars and Sisters. All proceeds from the sale of our religious goods go toward the support of the ministries of the Franciscan Friars of Holy Name Province.
