The Transitus

St. Philip will celebrate the Transitus at 6:30 on Oct. 3 in the Main Church- dinner to follow. 

“Each year on the third evening of October, we ritually remember the passing of St. Francis of Assisi from this life into God.  To ritually revisit the story of Francis’ passing is vital; without it something significant is missing.  It specifies the living memory of Francis; it intensifies our commitment to follow Christ in the way of the poor man of Assisi .” - Daniel Grigassy, O.F.M.
