Friendship between the Dominicans and Franciscans goes back to the time of St Dominic and St Francis. In honour of this friendship we had the blessing of celebrating the feast of St Francis with the Franciscan and Dominican Tertiaries. We began with Sung Vespers followed by the Transitus Ceremony of St Francis of Assisi and then Rosary and Benediction. We ended with a shared supper with special grace prayers sung on the occasion:
Apostolicus Pater Dominicus et Seraphicus Franciscus;
ipsi nos docuerunt legem tuam, Domine.
