Feast of St Francis of Assisi

St Francis

Each year on October 4th, Franciscans worldwide celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.  We send our Feast Day greetings to all Franciscans – FMDM sisters, Associates, staff and friends and we give thanks to God for the universal message of the Franciscan charism.

We ask for God’s blessing on all who share our Mission of bringing peace, healing and reconciliation and we pray in thanksgiving for the sisters in the communities with the name ‘St Francis’ in Ladywell Convent – England, Rathfarnham, Ballinasloe and Drogheda in Ireland, Kasanka in Zambia, Yola in Nigeria, Singapore, and Ipoh. May the spirit of our Holy Father Francis permeate their lives, their communities and their ministries.
