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.

Visit to the Novitiate

Richard_goodinAfter traveling to Chicago on Wednesday to visit with a prospective on Thursday morning, I drove to Cedar Lake, IN to participate in a Provincial Initial Formation Council meeting. There, besides meeting, we had a chance to meet with the Novices and their directors. Richard Goodin, O.F.M. a novice for our province, is webmaster for the community's website which can be viewed at

Richard and his classmates, Jesus Ramirez Tapia, O.F.M. of Sacred Heart Province and Chris Robert Leigh, O.F.M. of Immaculate Conception Province in England, are in their final months of preparation before making their First Vows in June. At the same time, our five Postulants here in Cincinnati and their future classmates from Sacred Heart Province in Joliet, IL and Assumption Province in Milwaukee, WI are getting ready to move on to the Novitiate in June.

Thanks be to God, the cycle continues with some good men preparing to be Franciscan Friars.
