Five young men arrived Friday, March 21, to participate in a Come and See weekend at one of our Franciscan Friaries in Cincinnati, OH. (l to r) Daniel Sanchez of Tampa, FL; Thomas Murphy presently studying in Las Cruces, NM; Brian Isenbarger of Indianapolis, IN; John Boissy of Cincinnati, OH; and Trevor Blum of Lake Wylie, SC joined the community for a weekend of discernment and a first-hand experience of our way of life. Joining the Vocation team was the St. Anthony community of Friars and Postulant, Nickolas Thorvaldsen, along with two Temporary Professed Friars from Chicago: Eric Seguin, O.F.M. and William Estrellanes, O.F.M. Prayer, fraternity, and fun highlighted the discernment weekend.
Please remember these five men and all others discerning our way of life in your prayers.
I have graduated to a cane with a little help from a walker when needed. The healing process has been slow but steady. I'm happy that spring is here and the weather will be cheerier.
