Mother Seraphina Farolfi

Foundress of the Clarist Franciscan Missionaries of the Most Blessed Sacrament

Mother Seraphina (Francesca Farolfi) was born on October 7, 1853 at Tossignano in Imola, Italy. At the age of 20, with a certificate in Teacher’s Training, she joined the religious Congregation of the Franciscan Tertiaries of St. Elizabeth at Forli. On November 4th 1873, the young Francesca was appointed Headmistress of St. Francis School, Forli. Very soon, she drafted the Rules and Regulations of St. Francis School and a Handbook for the Teachers. In 1881, Seraphina was sent to Palagano to open a convent and school and ten years later another at Bagno. Unforeseen events caused the transfer of St. Francis School from Forli to Bertinoro and the subsequent birth of a new religious Congregation.....

  • And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.

  • He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.

  • Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy.
