St. Francis events and celebrations earlier this month
A full week of events
A multitude of events always surround the Feast of St. Francis. We are happy to share with you a recap of our celebrations around the Province of St. John the Baptist.
The Transitus is a beautiful service that commemorates the death of St. Francis. You can watch the live streamed video of that evening at St. Clement Church here.
Watch the Transitus from the Church of the Transfiguration in Southfield, Michigan, on their Facebook page here.
A Flickr album of Transitus photos by Fr. Frank Jasper, OFM, and Chris Meyer can be viewed here.

Last but not least, the annual pet blessing services are always popular events. Below are a selection of photos from around the Province of St. John the Baptist. More Pet Blessing photos on our Flickr page here.
