Francis Fest Sunday Liturgy Suffuces with Spirit of Welcome

Paul Keggington

September 28, 2008

Commencing with a banner-waving entrance procession of  over forty organizations and groups that are representative of the involvement of members of the parish, the St. Francis of Assisi Parish Eucharistic liturgy on September 28, 2008 was stirringly festive and notably conscious of the need to reach out to others in need. The opening song “All are Welcome” repeated the Franciscan spirit of hospitality for all God’s people as the parish patron was called upon for intercession.

Francis Fest medieval activities continued through out the afternoon concluding with a 5 p.m. Sunday Supper for the poor sponsored by the parish. St. Francis of Assisi Parish collaborates with other faith communities and churches in the Manitowoc, WI area to provide a free meal once a month at Wesley United Methodist Church.
