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 Arrival

I got to visit and hold the newest member of the family this weekend. Mary Ellen was all of six days old the day I saw her. She and mother and father are doing very well. She has a great appetite and is very healthy. Mary Ellen is my eldest sister's four grandchild and my second great niece. She is her parents' first child.


Yesterday I drove to Marshalltown, IA to meet with a prospective and his parents. I enjoyed the day and appreciate the family's warm hospitality. I am staying over in Peoria, IL tonight to attend the funeral of the brother of one of our friars. The deceased lived here in my home town, so while I am home visiting family I'll stay to participate int he funeral.


Lot's to think about this weekend with family, a new baby, a visit with a prospective, and a funeral. Hopefully when I get home I'll be able to share a few thoughts.
