The Lent of Saint Michael

August 15 - September 29

Our Lady’s Little Portion and Our Lady of the Pearl, Secular Franciscan Fraternities, St. Joan of Arc Region, ask that you join with us in prayer and fasting for our country during the Lent of Saint Michael, from August 15th - September 29th. The United States, as a Christian Nation, desperately needs God`s hand of protection over it during our upcoming presidential elections.

In the writings of St. Francis, we are reminded again and again that Franciscans are called to be penitents, to pray and fast. Saint Michael’s Lent is a period of 40 days, honoring Mary and Saint Michael the Archangel. It begins on the Feast of the Assumption and ends on The Feast of the Archangels.

A few days late - but I'm in.

Our Lady of All Nations, pray for us.
