TransitusCelebrating Our Franciscan Feast Days


From the earliest days of the Franciscan Order, the followers of St. Francis have gathered on the anniversary of his death to celebrate his Transitus, that is, St. Francis’ passage from earthly life into everlasting life. On Wednesday, October 3, we, too, gather to celebrate the light which Francis was to his world. This is a time when we, inspired by Francis, consider how we can be light for our world. All are invited for this unique service of music and readings at 6:30 p.m. in St. Joseph Chapel.
 
Then, on Thursday, October 4, we celebrate with great joy the Feast of St. Francis with a Eucharistic Liturgy, also at 6:30 p.m. Please join the sisters and associates for Mass on this festive day!
