Monthly Intentions for October


That having promised to live “from Gospel to life and life to Gospel” in our Franciscan Vocation, we may receive the grace necessary to strengthen our resolve, to live that promise.


That the Holy Spirit directs our efforts to embrace the Franciscan way


That Our Blessed Mother accompanies us throughout our journey together, leading us always to her Son.

We remember in prayer the newly professed members of our fraternity. We ask God’s abundant blessings upon each of them

In Thanksgiving

We give THANKS  to God for creation
and the beauty that surrounds us.

We praise Him and give thanks for our Franciscan Vocation and Franciscan
Family who walk beside us in our journey,
and for the newly professed,
allowing that Family to continue to grow and be ever NEW.

We pray in gratitude for and with our own families
for their loving support in our Vocation and during all those moments during life,
both good and difficult,  that  need to be shared.

May God shower His abundant blessings upon the newly professed member of the our fraternity. May His grace and Holy Spirit surround them as they
take another step in Franciscan life. May they all find peace and joy, and the help
and support they need in their brothers and sisters in St. Francis.
