The Transitus of St. Francis is traditionally celebrated by Franciscans all over the world on October 3rd. This is the vigil of the Feast of St. Francis and is a night to commemorate the death of our beloved Saint. Transitus is a Latin word that means passage or crossing over. In every account written on the death of St. Francis, it is remembered that he crossed over from life on earth to eternal life with the Lord, full of great joy and song.
Saint Francis of Assisi Church will celebrate the Transitus Tuesday evening, October 3, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. in the Saint Clare Chapel.
Saint Francis of Assisi is our parish’s patron saint; please try to join in with the Secular Franciscans of our parish! There will be a brief social taking place afterward, and all are invited to attend.
