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.

Labor Day Picnic

Our local community gathered this evening to celebrate Labor DayDscf0744 with a picnicDscf0740_4 meal. On the right, Brother Gene, our Guardian, and Roger Lopez pick up some food (and do a little posing for the camera). On the left, Brothers Scott and Gabriel and Clifford Dscf0739_2Hennings seem intent on listening to someone during the meal. Lower left, Fr. Carl gives a wary look while Dan Helfrich is in the foreground with his "A&W" in hand.

Our day began with a celebration of the Eucharist in which Fr. Kenan reminded usDscf0745  that today is a time for us Catholics to reflect on the teachings of our Church with regard to many social issues related to human work. Our Church has a rich tradition of documents and policy supporting the dignity of human labor as a participation in the redemptive work of Jesus. Father challenged us to reflect on the Church's teaching today as we relax and celebrate the National Holiday. On the right is Roger Lopez, Fr. Dan Kroger, the CEO of Saint Anthony Messenger Press, and Josh van Cleef. Fr. Dan spent most of his years of ministry in the Philippines.
