Postulants Formally Received
In the context of Evening Prayer, our two new Postulants were formally received into the formation program by our Provincial Minister, Fr. Jeffrey Scheeler, O.F.M. On the right, Kevin Janke prepares before the service begins with Fr. Dan Kroger, Bro. Micheal Dubek, and Fr. Kenan Freson behind.
On the left, Fr. Jeffrey blesses the Tau Crosses which he then presented to each of the Postulants. On the right, Michael Charron receives the Tau Cross as a symbol of his desire to begin living the Franciscan life.
Kevin and Michael will spend one year at our St. Anthony Friary in Cincinnati learning to live our life. At the end of the year they will move on to Cedar Lake, IN to begin their year in the Novitiate.
With the reception of Kevin and Michael, our number of men in formation is nine.
