2012 Patron Saint Drawing

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Our community held its annual drawing of patron saints on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  This year five lunch bags were used to hold each category: a quote from Sacred Scripture, a quote from one of the writings of St. Francis, the names of a male and female saint, and the name of a friar of our community.

The quotes are intended to be something that the friar can meditate on throughout the year, the saints will be their patrons for the year, and the friar’s name is someone to be prayed for. The drawing of quotes can be quite amusing as they seem to usually befit the friar who draws them.
