Proposed Portiuncula Chapel at the Portiuncula Franciscan Hermitage and Retreat Center

Francis also told the friars to build their houses small and their cells of wood, not of stone, and he wanted them built in a humble style. He abhorred pretentious buildings, and disliked superfluous or elaborate appointments. He wished nothing about their tables or appointments to appear worldly or to remind them of the world, so that everything should proclaim their poverty and remind them that they were pilgrims and exiles.

Please prayerfully consider a one-time gift of $5.00 or $10.00 to help us build our little Portiuncula Chapel.
