In Religion this week we will be continuing our lessons on how the Holy Spirit helps us pray. Our saint of the week is Saint Clare. She was born in 1193 and died in 1253. Clare, a friend and follower of Francis of Assisi, came from a wealthy Italian family in Assisi. She joing Francis in living a life of poverty and simplicity. Francis helped Clare found a religious community of women known as the Poor Clares. The nuns live a contemplative life of work and prayer. Their mission is to pray for the world and for the Church. Her feast day is August 11th.
