Transcript of San Damiano Scholarship

ST. FRANCIS
was praying before the crucifix in the San Damiano chapel when he heard the call to
"REBUILD MY CHURCH"
come from Jesus who hung on the cross in the dilapidated chapel. Immediately, Francis began to repair the structure of the building he was praying in, but later came to realize that he was called to rebuild the church in a much different way.
