Celebrating the Feast of St. Francis

Written on: September 14, 2016

The Feast of St. Francis is on October 4. As Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart we believe, like St. Francis, that everything in our world is connected because God created everything! This belief leads us to care not only for people, but for all of the wonderful gifts given to us in creation: the air we breathe, the water we drink, the ground we walk upon and, the sun, moon and stars that light our way and delight us throughout the day!

On this special feast we are providing you with resources to help you understand this important relationship we have with the Earth and God’s creation. Below you will find inspirational videos, prayers and other resources brought to us through Catholic Health Association.
