On Sunday, September 25th, the Novena to St. Francis will begin. Pray it with us and/or send us your intentions for the Novena via the form at the bottom of this post.
Also, all are invited to join us as we celebrate the Feast Day of this Little Poor Man of Assisi at Our Lady of Solitude Chapel:
- Monday, October 3rd @ 5 p.m. – the Transitus of St. Francis. This is a beautiful celebration with First Vespers of the Feast, an account of the Saint’s passing, and veneration of a first-class relic. All are welcome.
- Tuesday, October 4th @ 9 a.m. – Holy Mass for the Solemnity of St. Francis
As we prepare to celebrate the Feast Days of those Saints who are particularly near and dear to us, it can be helpful to brush up on the details of their life and spirituality. Here’s a link to wonderful synopsis on St. Francis by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI that would be a wonderful (and brief!) pre-Feast Day read. Enjoy!
St. Francis of Assisi, Pray For Us!
