The seminar will provide valuable information on what families need for a successful multi-generation home construction project including designing for personal space, blended versus segregated living and pooling resources to help the bottom line.

St. Francis's love of animals celebrated by Manoa school

In the shadow of a statue of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of “all creatures great and small,” Father Gordian Carvalho blessed pets owned by students and staff of St. Francis School on the morning of Friday, Oct. 3.
Father Carvalho blessed dogs, cats in carrying cases, a turtle, fish, and even stuffed animals and photos of pets brought up by the smallest St. Francis students.

The blessing was held on the eve of the official Feast of St. Francis and there were no classes.
Sister Joan of Arc Souza, head of school, was present with her community of Franciscan nuns, an order founded in the name of St. Francis.  “We are celebrating our school's patron saint, who was a lover of animals and of all Creation,” said Sister Joan.  "What we are trying to teach our students is to accept all as Francis did."
The school was founded  in 1924.
