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.

A 4th of July "Picnic"

The annual 4th of July Friars' Picnic was scheduled for Saint Anthony Friary Dscf0013in Cincinnati  this afternoon, but mother nature didn't seem to know about it. I woke up this morning to chilly, rainy weather. Shortly after noon it looked like the sub might break through, but we had no such luck. For much of the time, we gathered in the garage made famous by the "Graduation" party held for the Postulants last May. (

Dscf0015Again, Fr. Kenan did the honors at the grill (seen above on the Dscf0018 right). The new postulants (Kevin Janke on left and Michael Charron on the right in the picture to the left) were introduced to some of the Cincinnati-area friars. In the picture on the right are some of the satisfied friars just after we ate. All of the traditional activities associated with the day had to be canceled due to the inclement weather.

Oh well, we enjoyed one another's company even if the weather didn't feel like July 4.
