With a special liturgy, which is celebrated on October 3rd, the vigil of St. Francis’ feast, the worldwide Franciscan family is celebrating the “Transitus” – the moment of saint Francis’ passing into eternity.
In St. James’ parish in Medjugorje, this rite was celebrated immediately after the evening Mass. Medjugorje Friars, Franciscan sisters, Franciscan Youth Fraternity (Frama) and members of the Franciscan Third Order took part in this celebration.
Together with many parishioners and pilgrims this year’s liturgy of the Transitus was presided by Fr. Danko Perutina.
