San Damiano Apron (Green)
Cook in style and evangelize at the same time with our green San Damiano apron! In an array of colors, this beloved cross of St. Francis of Assisi rests upon a green apron, made of 65% polysester, 35% cotton twill. The original cross, fashioned about 1100, hangs in Santa Chiara Church in Assisi. When in 1257, the Poor Clares moved to Santa Chiara, they took the San Damiano Cross with them and still guard it with great solicitude. The crucifix now hanging over the altar of the ancient church of San Damiano is a copy. All Franciscans cherish this cross as the symbol of their mission from God to commit our lives and resources to renew and rebuild the Church in the power of God. Share your love for the Franciscan spirituality, remind yourself to ever unite yourself to Christ and "rebuild His Church," or give as a gift to a friend, at the same time protecting yourself or a loved one from getting grease spatters or puffs of flour on your clothing while cooking or baking.
These aprons are one size fits all, being 28" long and 20" wide. For carrying around the recipe you are working on, your phone, or other important articles, there are two 7" wide pouch pockets on the front.
Use at a school or work cookout, at your parish brunch, or in the comfort of your home. Life is messy; nourishing others and serving them can be messy too, especially for families with little kids throwing things "into the mix" as well! Serve God and serve others while spreading a message and loving yourself by upkeeping your exterior presentation - and tending to and orienting your interior life to serving God in others. Enjoy nourishing the people of God with the protection and style of this handy apron!
