On Tuesday, October 3, our parish will be celebrating the vigil of St. Francis of Assisi’s death which is called the Transitus. The word comes from Latin meaning passage or crossing. Remembering the passing of St. Francis from this life into God is an important part of Franciscan spirituality.
“To ritually revisit the story of Francis’ passing is vital; without it something significant is missing. It specifies the living memory of Francis; it intensifies our commitment to follow Christ in the way of the poor man of Assisi.”
Join the Conventual Franciscan friars from our parish and other members of the Franciscan family in celebrating the Transitus at Saint Ita church (5500 N. Broadway) at 7 PM!

The mission of the Eucharistic Revival is to renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist. The vision of the Eucharistic Revival is to inspire a movement of Catholics across the United States who are healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist—and who are then sent out on mission “for the life of the world.”
Canterbury House is thrilled to be hosting guest speaker Martha Hennessy, member of the New York City Catholic Worker Community that was started by her grandmother, Servant of God Dorothy Day. We will be reflecting on how we can respond to the Eucharistic Revival’s mission and vision in our lives, our parish and our community. We will also be discussing plans/interest for attending the upcoming Eucharistic Congress in July 2024 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
