Feast of St. Francis Open Planning

Every year, Creighton celebrates the Feast of St. Francis with a mass, followed by a luncheon where students, faculty, and staff are recognized for their dedication to the spirit of St. Francis and for advancing sustainability in the classroom, on campus, and throughout the city. A number of other events such as a Catholic Climate Covenant program will be part of the St. Francis celebration. If you are interested in planning or assisting with events, please email Becky at
