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.

Joint Province Assembly

Every third year, Saint John the Baptist province has an All-Province Assembly (APA). These are fraternal gatherings at which we usually have some informational/educational input and maybe address some issues in preparation for the Provincial Chapter the following year. This year we are having a Joint Province Assembly (JPA) because we are meeting with the members of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Province to discuss our possible future together as a new province.

We will gather at St. Xavier University in Chicago from Monday afternoon, May 24, through Friday noon, May 28. Over the past decade or more I have been on the planning committee for the APA and knew exactly what we were going to do. This time I am not, so I do not know what's going to happen outside of a general schematic which lists meetings, prayer times, meals, etc. But, I am taking a video cam and a digital camera and hopefully will be able to post some pictures/videos here and on YouTube during the week.

So say a prayer or two, if you would, please that the Holy Spirit--whose Solemnity we celebrate Sunday at Pentecost--will be with us to lead and guide our discernment.
