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.

Postulants Formally Received

DSCF0879 DSCF0866 In the context of Evening Prayer, six men were formally received into our Postulancy Program this evening, July 6, at St. Anthony Friary in Cincinnati. Pictured on the left are the Postulants with Provincial Minister Jeffrey Scheeler, O.F.M. They are (l to r) Pierce Gibson, Jonathan Beer, Joseph DiAte, Fr. Jeff, Daniel Bircher, Eric Seguin, and Adam Farkas. Pictured on the right are the Tau Crosses which were given to each of the young men as a sign of their commitment to the formation program. The Tau was a favorite symbol of dedication and commitment for Saint Francis. A video of the service will hopefully be posted tomorrow.

Thanks, Fr. Don for putting together a great video of the postulant reception liturgy! I don't feel so out of touch having now viewed it.

And I would like to send my warmest (and by that I mean a sunny, hot, "One Love", Carribean sea, "No Problem", Jamaican style) welcome to the new postulants. Welcome home to the fraternity fellas!

Fr. Frank, Fr. Carl and Bro. Gene, will take great care of you; of that I'm sure! Enjoy the tour of the province. When you get to New Orleans, hop a boat going south and head past Cuba to the west end of the island of Jamaica. I'll be the only red head on the beach and I'll show you the SJB mission fields of Jamaica! Improbable I know, but it sounds nice doesn't it? ;-)

peasah 'n gooda (that's Jamaican for peace and good!)
