You have arrived at the Vocation pages of our provincial website. We have some exciting things going on in our province and I’m happy to share them with you.
In late May we held a province-wide meeting referred to as a Chapter. We elected new leadership and revised our provincial legislation as well as celebrated those Friars celebrating various jubilees of Profession and Ordination. In June we had the Ordination to the Priesthood for one of our young men in formation, Brother Richard Gooding, OFM. Later this summer we will celebrate Solemn Professions of Brothers Colin King, OFM, and Michael Charron, OFM. God continues to bless us and we try to respond to those blessing with joy and gratitude.
Please check out our other pages as well. You can examine the requirements for becoming a Franciscan on the Becoming a Friar page. On the Is This Life for Me? page you can read about the process of discernment. To receive a packet of information about becoming a Franciscan or to talk with a Vocation Director, check out the How to Contact Us page. Finally, to learn what is happening in Formation or the Vocation Office, go to Fr.Don’s Vocation Blog. I would also invite you to take a look at some of our videos posted on YouTube at franciscanvocations and visit our Facebook page at Franciscan Vocations, St. John the Baptist Province.
Join us in thanking God for the wonderful men he is calling to our way of life. We would certainly welcome you as well if that is what the Lord is calling you to do.
Fr. Don Miller, OFM
Director of Vocations
