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.

Mid-week Update

Shops_in_sandwichI had every intention of posting every other day at least while here, but my schedule has been rather hectic. I arrived late in the term and this has put a lot of pressure on the students and myself to complete our work in very few days. So I have been putting in some long days basically rewriting my courses. The marriage/sexuality course is the new one this year and I am having to do a lot of reading and note taking to adapt things as we go. I have not been able to present it as I had planned.

But the international and intercultural life here at the Centre continues to inspire me. We have students from all over the world and from every conceivable Franciscan community--many that I have never heard of. Just among the men we have Capuchins, Conventuals and OFMs from America, England, Ethiopia, Philippines. China, Lithuania, Italy, Croatia, Zambia, and more. It is so good to be with brothers who share my vision of life and yet come from another part of the world from cultures I know little about. Franciscan brothers and sisters all.

Maybe this weekend I will get some more local pictures. I cannot go too far because I have to mark (grade) term papers. Four of the friars I am teaching are due to graduate with their BA degree and we need to get their work completed.
