Dismas Charities St. Francis of Assisi Art Work

When a fierce storm damaged a large tree in the meditation area of the Diersen facility in Louisville, St. William Catholic Church commissioned a Peoria, Illinois sculpture to turn an 8’ segment of it into St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of nature, gardening and animals of the world.  Artist Tim Gill took just two days to complete the piece with nothing more than a chainsaw.
