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.

Early Planning for Vacation

SewingThe postulants will be getting away for a few weeks of vacation between theirDscf0078 time in  Postulancy and the beginning of Novitiate. Richard Goodin wants to do some camping and hiking along the Appalachian trail for a few of those vacation days, so he bought a kit including a tent and sleeping quilt. They are advertised to be very serviceable and extremely light weight. But, the items need to be cut out, sewn, and constructed. So Richard has been busy during his spare time learning how to run the sewing machine and how to use a needle. Friday night I took pictures of him threading and tying pieces of yarn through the quilt so that the insulation doesn't bunch inside the nylon casing.

Richard has also taken on the tasks of feeding the birds and the deer on our property. The squirrels are managing to play havoc with his bird feeders.

Life in the friary is interesting to say the least.
