Friar Don Miller. OFM
I am a Franciscan priest. I spent my early years of ministry in New Mexico working among the Pueblo Native Americans and the Hispanics. In 1978 I began my years in academics working as a chaplain, faculty member, and administrator at various universities in the southwest and the midwest. I taught various course in theology, especially in my area of specialty which is moral theology. I have been the Vocation Director for the Province of Saint John the Baptist since 2003.

New Novices and Postulants

Img37Today at 4:00 p.m. the Provincial Ministers of Sacred Heart, Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and Saint John the Baptist Provinces will receive their Postulants into the novitiate. The new Novices will live at San Damiano Friary in Cedar Lake, Indiana for one year. At the end of the year of formation they will profess Temporary Vows as Franciscan Friars. As Novices they are members of their respective provinces and can sign "O.F.M." after their names.

Next weekend, our province will receive two new men into our Postulancy Program in Cincinnati, OH. Later this summer, August 12, two of our Temporarily Professed Friars will celebrate their profession of Solemn or life-long Vows at a ceremony here in Cincinnati.

The province continues to grow with the advancement of our men in formation. Let us pray for them as they continue to discern their life as Franciscan Friars. (There will be updated pictures of our men in formation on the "Franciscan Formation" page of this web site after July 1.)
