October Happenings

 October began with a community gathering as we celebrated the Transitus of St. Francis beginning at sundown.

Franciscans worldwide celebrate St. Francis' passing from earthly life to eternal life on the eve of October 3rd.

The community comes forward to bless the statue of St. Francis.

It is not a Franciscan Feast without a social to follow!
All enjoy a true Italian meal of spaghetti and garlic bread!

Hmmm... Which one will I take?

Enjoying the food...

 ...and friends!

Second Grade led the school liturgy early in the month.

"Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19


The Sisters said goodbye to Father Dale, 
the Director of Indian Ministry for the past six years.  
Father Dale has been missioned in New Mexico.

October is also a great time for gardening in Arizona!

What's up?
Not ours!  This is no Bull!


  1. Thank you for sharing October life at St. Peter Indian Mission. I look forward to seeing life in AZ through your eyes!

  2. St. Francis must love all the desert celebrations in his honor. Glad you are not hooked on the final creature in your line of images!
