So nice to see our young people at St.Barnabas paying their respects by decorating crosses & planting them in the garden during the service.

St Barnabas Bethnal Green

Last week at St Barnabas, we held the Transitus. The Transitus is an ancient prayer service celebrated each year by Franciscans around the world on the night of October 3rd. This is the vigil of the Feast of St. Francis and is a night to commemorate the death of our beloved Saint Francis of Assisi and his entry into God’s eternal glory. Transitus is a Latin word that means passage or crossing over.

The Transitus is truly a celebration of life and hope for all Franciscan women and men and those who share with us a Franciscan heart and spirit. While the Transitus recalls the events of the final moments of Francis’ life on earth, it is a remembrance of his total journey and his ongoing conversion in penitential life and love which transformed him internally and externally, physically and spiritually into an image of Christ crucified. In every account written on the death of St. Francis, it is remembered that he crossed over from life on earth to eternal life with the Lord, full of great joy and song.”
