05 Oct Transitus and Feast of St. Francis at the General Curia 2017
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. Rufino Lim, OFM, of the Justice and Peace Office, presided at the Transitus. The church of Santa Maria Mediatrice was completely packed 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. Viliam Dóci OP, Vicar of the Master of the Dominican Order for the Convento of Santa Sabina, presided at the solemn Eucharist. He was accompanied by four other Dominican friars who joined the Curia community’s festivities.
