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.

St. Anthony Messenger Features Fr. Bart Pax, O.F.M.

Bart_paxIn the last post I mentioned that the last place the Postulants, Richard Goodin and Dennis Geib, and their Directors, Frs. Carl Langenderfer, O.F.M. and Frank Geers, O.F.M., are going on the Provincial Ministries Tour will be New Orleans where Fr. Bart Pax, O.F.M. is trying to rebuild St. Mary of the Angels parish and church. Well, it so happens that next month's issue of Saint Anthony Messenger has a feature article on Fr. Bart and his work. You can access the article on the Saint Anthony Messenger web page at: Just click this link or copy it onto the internet address bar and you should be able to read it. The article is a good example of a friar in action for God's people.

Also, in case you haven't read the comments from the last post, Michael asked if the tour Scott_obrechtis going to include the Appalachian Missions in Kentucky. Michael visited them earlier this summer and feels they are also a good example of Franciscanism. I responded in a second comment that Bro. Scott Obrecht, O.F.M., our Moderator of Missionary Evangelization and the Director of the Franciscan Missionary Union will take the Postulants on a visit to the Kentucky Missions next Spring.

The dedication of Fr. Bart in New Orleans and the priests and brothers in Kentucky are part of what gives our province its character and personality--something we are proud of and thank God for.
