Rebuild My Church

Eight centuries ago in the Italian town of Assisi, a young man named Francis had an experience that changed history. As he knelt before the crucifix in the church of San Damiano, Francis heard Christ speak: “Francis, go rebuild my church, which is falling down."

Today at Marian University, San Damiano Scholars of all faith traditions are working to understand what “rebuild my church” means to them. It’s a profoundly important—and individual—challenge with societal implications. And it might be for you.
