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.

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.
