If you are in the Fonda, NY area, please join our Saint Kateri National Shrine and Historic Site in celebration of the Transitus of St. Francis of Assisi, on October 3rd, at 7:00 p.m., in their Grassmann Hall, for a candlelight procession to their St. Peter’s Chapel. Transitus (Latin for passage or crossing) is celebrated by Franciscans throughout the world, in honor of the passing of St. Francis of Assisi, from this life to Eternal Life with God, on the evening of October 3rd, the Eve of his Feast Day. Refreshments will follow.
Sponsored by The Shrine of St. Anthony Young Adult Community (including lay students & student friars in studies at The Catholic University of America, young adult members of the Militia Immaculata, young adults from Howard County, members of young adult groups from the Archdiocese of Washington & the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and young adult Secular Franciscans), a special Mass will be hosted at our Shrine of St. Anthony (Ellicott City, MD), followed by a Candle Light Procession and a blessing with a Relic of St. Francis!
All over our province our friars will have Transitus Celebrations on October 3rd and Feast Day Celebrations on October 4th. Please visit the “Locations” page on our website, to find a ministry nearest to you. Contact them via their individual website links you will find there, and get more details.
