Illuminate Your Prayers

The Franciscan Monastery has a replica of the Lourdes Grotto on the Monastery grounds. It is here that a special outdoor Vigil Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, Aug. 14 at 7 p.m. We hope that you can join us and the choir from St. Anthony’s Parish. Masses on the Solemnity of the Assumption (Thursday, Aug. 15) are at 6 & 7 a.m. at the Monastery. 

Please light a candle at the Tomb of Our Lady on the Feast Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
