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.

"Family Day" at the Mega Conference

Dscf0764Yesterday was another day of large group discussion Dscf0789led by Dominic Monti, O.F.M. Michael Lorentsen, O.F.M.Conv. makes a point in the picture on the far right. It was also the day that the Conventual Franciscans were responsible for prayer. Pictured is Paul Schloemer, O.F.M.Conv. leading us at the Eucharist. We ended the day by all going out to dinner together.


Today we met for "family" meetings. That means that we broke into our individual Orders to discuss our own common issues and concerns. We Franciscans (O.F.M.s) looked into a number of issues including some of the things we are doing to animate interest in vocations here in the States and in Ireland and England. It is good to share ideas and to learn from one another. It appears that we are all doing wDscf0784ell and have good energy for our ministries. Tonight we are going out to dinner in our smaller groups and then tomorrow morning we will all meet again in a large group to finalize our conference.


Pictured on the left are David Liedl, T.O.R at the piano and Vincent Gluc, O.F.M. Conv. leading us in music. Our prayer times and Eucharists have been simple yet rich as we join our voices in praising God. We are all brothers when we gather in prayer.
