The largest Francis in the Schools event ever
will be held on December 3.
Please donate or volunteer your time !

Francis in the Schools is a free and fun-filled one-day educational outing offered for schoolchildren in inner-city neighborhoods. The program is designed as a nonsectarian history lesson about Francis of Assisi , the remarkable figure for whom San Francisco was named. A colorful musical play or concert is offered in the morning followed by a beautiful Umbrian Renaissance Faire with music, dancing, and games in the afternoon. Since its founding in 2011 by Dr. Carol Weyland Conner, the program has hosted over 8,000 children at 18 events in San Francisco, Oakland, New York City, Baltimore, and Washington, DC.
