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.

More on the Mega Conference

Dscf0754_2The Franciscan Center is a ministry of the Franciscan Sister of Dscf0759 Allegheny, NY and is proving to be a very pleasant place for our gathering. It is situated on a picturesque river and there is a great deal of wild life, especially birds, around. It's a good setting for quiet reflection as well as Charlie Martinez, O.F.M. found out.

Dscf0761On the left, John Russo and Miguel Ramirez, Capuchin Friars, meeCharlie_and_patrick_4t in the library of the Center, while, on the right,  Charlie Martinez converses with Patrick Foley, T.O.R. A major part of the conference is for us to share our hopes and dreams as well as the successes and failures of our ministries with one another. I always come away from these meeting feeling uplifted by our sharing.

Dscf0783Dominic Monti, O.F.M. continued with his presentation this morning. Again, he challenged us with our own Franciscan heritage to live the life of the Spirit. This evening we are all going out to dinner  Dscf0781together. Tomorrow each Order will meet individually to process some of our interprovincial issues and concerns. 

One of the Sisters at the Center took our group picture after our Eucharist Yesterday.

From the pictures it does look like a beautiful place to spend for reflection and conversation. Enjoy the rest of your week.
