On Memorial Day, 17 friars will be honored in Cincinnati at a celebration of their anniversaries in religious life. We asked our Jubilarians if they have a personal goal they would like to attain – or something they’d like to accomplish, big or small. Here’s how they responded.
This time of year, we can all look back and see what God has done. We are grateful. What is on your “bucket list”? What stops you from taking the next risk on the adventure of life?
There are a lot of all-stars in the room tonight. Some of them play basketball. But most are supporters, coaches or staff of Friars Club. Four are honorees, people so selfless they give us pause about our own attempts at altruism. All are here for a common cause, to raise funds that will ensure kids a safe and nurturing place to call their own.
Here is a picture of me at a recent regional NRVC gathering at the Franciscan Sisters of Sylvania, Ohio. We attended a Podcast taping of Ask a Sister, part of A Nun’s LIfe ministry.
I appreciate the many friars who have accompanied the new brothers over the 175 years of St. John the Baptist Province. It has led us into the adventure of our lives: a life of prayer, ministry with those in need, and a fraternity of brothers pledged to living the Gospel of Jesus in new ways in our world today.
