Knights of St. Francis

The Knights of Saint Francis were created to guard the Porziuncola Nuova, feed and house the poor, create peace and follow in the footsteps of Saint Francis of Assisi.

La Porziuncola Nuova is a replica of the little church that Saint Francis himself rebuilt in Assisi, Italy in 1209. It is located at the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi in San Francisco, CA. It is a center for pilgrimages and peace initiatives for the United States and the world.It is one of 5 places in the world where one can receive the indulgence granted to St. Francis from the Pope Honorius III.

The mission of the Knights of St. Francis is to serve imitating the virtues and practices of St. Francis of Assisi and render love and gratitude as modeled by Jesus.
