July 4th Picnic
About 35 Friars gathered at Saint Anthony Friary in Cincinnati on Friday, July 3rd for the annual Independence Day picnic. This is a city-wide affair at which the newly arrived Postulants get a change to meet some of the local Friars and the Friars get to meet them. At left are Colin King, Adam Calder, and Andrew Farwick resting in the carport. At right are the three Postulants and I, Fr. Don, O.F.M., in a game of bean bag toss. Adam and I challenged Colin and Andrew and the results of the game are sealed and considered highly confidential. :-)
The formal reception of the Postulants will take place Tuesday, July 7th. I intend to post pictures of the ceremony.
