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.

New Novices

Dsc_0052_2_2Wednesday, June 25, our province was blessed with the reception of five young men into the Novitiate. The five Postulants arrived at Cedar Lake, IN on June 24. Our Provincial Minister, Fr. Jeffrey Scheeler, O.F.M., admitted them into the Novitiate making them members of the Order of Friars Minor. The Provincial Ministers of Sacred Heart and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Provinces were also on hand to receive their Postulants into the Novitiate bringing the total number of novices to nine.

Dsc_0070_3In the picture on the left, Friar Clifford Hennings, O.F.M. signs the official documents while Fr. John Stein, O.F.M., the Director of Novices looks on. Standing behind Friar Clifford are our other new novices, Friars Daniel Helfrich, O.F.M., Roger Lopez. O.F.M., Tim Tran, O.F.M., and Joshua van Cleef, O.F.M. (Just as the service began my camera quit, so I am indebted to Fr. Frank Jasper, O.F.M. for these two pictures. He will be sending more in the next few days.)

Our prayerful support goes out to the nine new members of the Order of Friars Minor.

"And the Lord gave me brothers!" S. Francis

God is good and I am thrilled about the nine new novices; especially the five from SJB! How good it is to dwell in unity with brothers.
