Six Participate in "Come and See" weekend
Six men ranging in age from 18 to 36 just completed a Come and See weekend at St. Anthony Friary in Cincinnati, OH. The purpose of the weekend is to allow those seriously interested in looking into the possibility of joining our Franciscan community a chance to experience and learn about our life and ministries. They have already been in touch with the Vocation Office for an initial period of discernment and are ready to look more deeply into our fraternal life. Those who feel that the weekend confirmed their feeling that the Lord is calling them to us now begin the admission process.
The participants, as pictures from left to right, were: Jacob Powell from Lubbock, TX; Joshua van Cleef from Detroit, MI; Dan Helfrich from Sandusky, OH; Daryl Allen from Beaumont, TX; Roger Lopez from Pensacola, FL; and Davies Crasta from Lubbock, TX. (It seems Texas was the state to be from this weekend.) In December, the My Journey feature on the Franciscan Formation page on our vocation pages at our website will highlight comments from these men.
