Preaching to God's Creatures: The Franciscans of Anderson County
January 23-June 30, 2016
FREE
Saint Francis was born Francesco di Bernadone in Assisi, Italy. He had a privileged upbringing until 1204, when he decided to live a life of poverty and serve God. In the presence of the Bishop of Assisi, Francis allowed his father to disown him so that he could fully embrace a life of serving God. In 1209 he started the Order of Friars Minor, better known as the Franciscans friars. Francis died in 1224 and was canonized as a saint in 1226. He is the patron saint of animals and one of the patron saints of Italy. Since his death the Order of Friars Minor has grown into the largest Catholic religious order in the world. Their influence spread into Anderson, South Carolina when a Franciscan priest, Father Francis Gorman, arrived to serve the Catholic African-American community of Anderson, starting St. Mary of the Angels Catholic Church in 1943. The Franciscans have continued to serve the people of Anderson, regardless of race or creed for over 70 years. Today, both Catholic Churches in Anderson County are run by the Order of Friars Minor making Franciscan teachings an important influence on the Roman Catholic community in the county.
