Painting of the Transitus by Chilean painter Pedro Subercaseaux Erraězuriz, OSB (1911-1920s). Public domain

The Transitus, or crossing, refers to “the time of passage through death to life”

Please join the Franciscan friars of the Province of St. John the Baptist on the vigil of the Feast of St. Francis, as we commemorate the death of our beloved Saint. In an evening of joy, story and song we will celebrate the life and enduring influence of our beloved patron, St. Francis of Assisi.

You can attend in person at St. Clement Church in St. Bernard, Ohio, or at Church of the Transfiguration in Southfield, Michigan. Both services begin at 7:00 p.m. (EDT). Addresses and website information below.
