Clare of Assisi was a contemporary of Francis of Assisi. Inspired by the life and preaching of Francis, she decided to dedicate her life to God. She wanted to preach the gospel, just as Francis was doing. However the Church was not ready for woman to be itinerant preachers. So she was advised to live the gospel life in the cloistered monastery.
Under the guidance of Francis, Clare began her challenge. Soon other women joined her and her monastery began to flourish in numbers and fervour.
Her story is one of courage, determination and faithfulness. She is a powerful intercessor. The patron of eye disease, goldsmiths, laundry, television, bicycle messengers, good weather, needleworkers, remote viewing, extrasensory perception, etc.
.On 11th August we celebrated the Feast Day of St. Clare of Assisi, who devoted her life to prayers and service . To honour this Saint , a Prayer Service was conducted by the K.G. teachers.
