Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi (Catholic)

October 4, 2022

St. Francis of Assisi

Today, Catholics celebrate Francis of Assisi, who abandoned a life of luxury for a life devoted to Christian poverty, interreligious dialogue and peacemaking. He is the founder of an order of priests, and it is Francis who originated the practice of commemorating the birth of Jesus with the nativity scene. He is the patron saint of animals and the environment.

More Information can be found here.

Some catholic parishes celebrate this feast day with prayer services held outdoors and a special blessing of animals.

"The main rule to me is to honor God with your life. To live a life of integrity. Not be selfish. You know, help others. But that's really the essence of the Christian faith."
