Saint Francis of Assisi

The feast day of Saint Francis

Many churches remember Francis of Assisi each year on October 4. The day is considered a "feast day" honouring the saint. 

Generally speaking, saints are simply people who have gone before us in the faith, people whom we honour and remember for their exemplary lives, or for their example of faith and perseverance in the midst of great suffering and persecution.

What Charlottesville shows us

What we believe matters. It matters because beliefs ultimately shape how we live; that's what Charlottesville, Virginia shows us. People who believe in violence may resort to violence. People who believe they are somehow better than others, that others are somehow subhuman, may act their beliefs out with tragic consequences. The terrible events of recent days in Charlottesville drive home this reality.
