Stories in Stone
September 21, 1:30-3:00pm
$12 preregistered/prepaid. $15 at the door.
Assisi Heights has stories engraved in the walls. Literally! However, many more anecdotes tell the stories that chronicle the history hidden in the walls. Come up close and see some of the architectural features, aesthetic design aspects and a few of the often-overlooked artistic Franciscan features. Unravel the mystique of Assisi Heights. Please wear walking shoes for this indoor and outdoor event.
