More on the Mega Conference
The Franciscan Center is a ministry of the Franciscan Sister of 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.
On the left, John Russo and Miguel Ramirez, Capuchin Friars, meet 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.
Dominic 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 together. Tomorrow each Order will meet individually to process some of our interprovincial issues and concerns.
