Join us for a beautiful celebration of the Transitus – the passing into eternal life of Our Holy Father St. Francis of Assisi. This ancient Franciscan tradition includes readings from the testimonies of Francis and his companions, the gradual elimination of the light, the agape (sharing of the bread), and the veneration of his relic. In the ambiance of the candlelit Basilica, beautiful choral music will be provided by local choir Canticum Novum, including the works of Victoria, Elgar, Stanford and John Ireland. Refreshments will follow in the Friars’ Garden.
