 St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) is known for many accomplishments in his life:  as a priest-missionary, as a Bishop, as a spiritual director, as a devotional writer, and as a founder of a religious order.  He is honored as a saint, a Doctor of the Church, and patron of writers and of the deaf. 

Our Heritage Week celebrations focus on those aspects of his life and legacy that contribute to higher education at DeSales University in the 21st century.  To learn more about each focal point of the week, follow the links below:
