Eleven novices from the Order of Friars Minor reached a joyous milestone in their formation as friars when they received the Franciscan habit and cord at the Rite of Investiture.
Fourteen men were accepted into the interprovincial postulancy program.
Postulant Tim Amburgey was prompted to follow his dream when he saw a Become A Friar sign at the St. Anthony Shrine.
Ten friars from four U.S. provinces professed their vows to live St. Francis of Assisi’s Rule of the Order of Friars Minor.
Our condolences to our brothers of the Province of Santa Barbara who lost a dear member of their community, Br. Eric Pilarcik, OFM.
Vocations Director Br. Tim Lamb spent the week with other friars in Phoenix, Az.
