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.

Busy weeks and new adventure

The past few weeks have been taken up by preparations for our Provincial Chapter which will take place May 19-23 at St. Meinrad Archabbey in southern Indiana. We hold a Chapter--a province-wide meeting in which we elect administration personnel and make decisions concerning our Franciscan life together--every three years. This year we are meeting at a Benedictine Archabbey and will be electing an entire slate of persons to the administrative offices of our community.

Franciscan_centre_entry_2The new adventure is that I am teaching a course for the Franciscan International Study Centre in Canterbury, England via the internet this spring. I had traveled to Canterbury the past two years but am unable to do so this year due to my responsibilities with our Chapter. I had mentioned last year while at the Centre that I would be willing to teach via Skype if they so desired. So, a month or so ago I received an invitation to set up the technology and teach one course. I began this past Wednesday and with only a couple of minor glitches the first session went well.

It kind of boggles the mind to think that I can sit in my office in Cincinnati, Ohio and see and talk with a student in England in real time.
