Feast of St. Francis
Tuesday, October 3, 2023 | 7:00 PM
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
The idea of death in the Latin transitus (transition, passing over) represents a unique Christian terminology linked to the paschal mystery. It consecrates the passage of the dying to eternal life. Offering the sacrifice of his or her personal life, the believer shares in the paschal transitus of Christ himself.
We hold a special service commemorating the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi.
The service includes transcendent works of Tomas Luis de Victoria, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, C.V Stanford, Paul Smith, Albert Alcaraz, and Josef Rheinberger.
All are welcome without charge to this observance and musical offering.
Parking is available without charge adjacent to the Basilica in the Diocesan garage off 5th St and Monroe.
