Transitus and Feast of St. Francis at the General Curia

The feast of our Seraphic Father Saint Francis of Assisi was celebrated at the General Curia on October 3 and 4.

On the evening of the 3rd, Br. Sinisa Balajić, OFM, Vice Secretary for Formation and Studies, presided at the Transitus. The church of Santa Maria Mediatrice was completely full with religious sisters from various Congregations, nearby Franciscan communities and friends. A social in the cloister of the Curia followed the liturgical celebration.

On the 4th of October, as is tradition, Fr. Bruno Cadoré, Master of the Dominican Order, presided at the solemn Eucharist.
