Annual Jubilee Celebration
Every year we Franciscans get together and celebrate the jubilees of the Friars who have been professed and/or ordained for 25, 50, 60, and 65 and more years. This year we are blessed with Fr. Noel William, O.F.M. who is celebrating the75th anniversary of his First Profession of Vows.
Pictured at the right is Fr. Noel with Friar Clifford Hennings, O.F.M., our youngest novice, at the celebration of the150th Anniversary of our province and the 800th of our Way of Life which was held in Cincinnati of April 16. Fr. Noel has been a professed Franciscan for half as long as our province has existed.
We will celebrate the jubilees this year on Memorial Day. And, by the way, Friar Clifford and his novice classmates will make their First Profession of Vows on June 15 at the Novitiate in Cedar Lake, IN.
