San Damiano Society

San Damiano Society

Go, rebuild my church….

St. Francis of Assisi was praying before the San Damiano Cross when he received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. The original cross hangs in the Basilica of Saint Clare (Basilica di Santa Chiara) in Assisi, Italy. Franciscans cherish this cross as the symbol of their mission from God. The cross, sometimes called an icon cross, contains images of other saints and people related to Christ’s crucifixion.

The mission of THE SAN DAMIANO SOCIETY is to provide leadership opportunities, for the friends and family of ST. FRANCIS CENTER FOR RENEWAL, to participate in a unique and meaningful way in the success and growth of our ministry to the people of the Lehigh Valley and beyond.

The San Damiano Society at St. Francis Center for Renewal includes those who are most invested in the success of our Center. Gifts from Society members to St. Francis Center for Renewal’s Annual Appeal, provide a major source of financial support for the Center and its ministry. Most importantly, your gift allows St. Francis Center to continue the ministry that was begun here over 65 years ago. By making a leadership gift to this year’s Annual Appeal you have a wonderful opportunity to ensure that St. Francis Center for Renewal continues to be an  “… oasis of peace and healing.”
