Blessed Francis Schervier Clip-On Figure
As a child, Frances Schervier would sneak into her father's factory in Germany and give hand-sewn socks and gloves to the tired children who worked there in horrific conditions. Over the years, Frances' love of the poor and vulnerable became her "holy fire". She founded a religious congregation dedicated to bringing healing, hope and compassion to the poor and suffering. Today, the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor minister across five continents through love and service, especially to the poor and needy.
