Last Saturday the novices attended the Transitus of Saint Francis. This is the vigil of the Feast of Saint Francis in which the Franciscans celebrate the passing of Saint Francis into heavenly glory. Traditionally, the Dominicans would have a special presence at the Transitus just as the Franciscans would have a special presence at the feast of our Holy Father Dominic. This is an expression of close friendship between the two orders as they were formed at the same time and had similar forms of life. We were delighted to be joined by the Capuchins, some of whom study at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology.
Father Anthony Rosevear, OP presided at the transitus and Br. Richard preached his first sermon. Check out the pictures!
