Days to go:
The Observance of Saint Francis of Assisi celebrates the life and teachings of one of the most widely venerated Christian saints. Known for his dedication to peace, humility, and simplicity, Saint Francis of Assisi was the founder of the Order of Friars Minor, commonly known as the Franciscan Order. This celebration commemorates Saint Francis' impact on the world and aims to inspire believers to embody his values of compassion and love for all living things.
Saint Francis of Assisi was born in late 12th century Italy. He was known for his dedication to poverty, care for the sick, and affinity towards animals and the natural world. His influence transcended borders, which can be seen in the UK through the establishment of Franciscan orders and the many churches named in his honor. Notably, the Greyfriars order was introduced to Britain by Saint Francis' own followers in the 13th century and has a longstanding legacy throughout the UK. The ethos of Saint Francis also has a lasting impact on the UK’s ecological movement, resonating with the growing concern for the environment and the principles of sustainable living.
In the United Kingdom, the Observance of Saint Francis of Assisi often includes special church services and prayers, as well as events highlighting his teachings on ecology and animal welfare. Some devotees may also organise animal blessing ceremonies to honor Saint Francis' love for all creatures. The annual observance of Saint Francis of Assisi for the Roman Catholic Church is usually held worldwide on October 4th (or on October 3rd if the 4th falls on a Sunday).
