Transitus and the Feast of St Francis
On the evening of October 3rd, Franciscans all around the world celebrate the Transitus, or passing, of St Francis. During the celebration there are hymns, readings from the Life of St Francis and Gospel texts. The Friars and secular Franciscans join the Sisters at our Motherhouse for this celebrations. The Feast of St Francis, October 4, is a day celebrated with great solemnity by the Sisters.
