How Franciscans Celebrate ‘Hallowed’ Eve

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to enjoy ‘Hallowed Eve’ pumpkin creations. Novices and Postulant Regina prepared for the eve of All Saints by doing some group carving. You will find their efforts quite original.  

Unlike the practice of decorating “jack-o’-lanterns”—the name comes from an Irish folktale about a man named  Jack who failed in generosity-originating in Ireland, where garden turnips and potatoes served as an expressive canvas, this pumpkin carving party initiates a Francis-o-lantern to the festivities.
