 Our Description

It was the age of knights and kings, when honor belonged to the heroes and glory was found in the battlefield.  There lived a brave young man named Francis, whose wish was to become a mighty warrior and conquer a magnificent castle.

One day Francis felt a calling to greater glory.  God had vested upon him a very special mission that would require a supreme act of courage.  For the love of God, his King, Francis gave up all that he had and joyfully embarked upon the most exciting and unexpected adventure.

FRANCIS, THE KNIGHT OF ASSISI is the remarkable true story of the founder of the Order of Minor Friars and inspiration for three Franciscan orders.
