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.

New Vocation Directors and Blogsters

Peanut GallaryAfter twelve years of serving as Vocation Director for the Franciscan Province of St. John the Baptist, I will be moving on to a year of sabbatical. I plan to update my knowledge of moral theology and learn more about making websites. Both are interests of mine. I have a doctoral degree in moral theology and have written a couple of computer programs, so they are not new fields of study for me.


Fr. Luis Aponte-Merced, O.F.M. (left) Larry Zurekand Fr. Larry Zurek, O.F.M. (right) will be taking over the ministry of Vocations. Presently they are a pastoral team in Peoria, IL at the parish where I was baptized and celebrated my First Mass. Luis Aponte-MercedThey are excited about their new ministry and look forward to mentoring your men into the Franciscan way of life.


This will be my last post on this site. I admit I have not been the most faithful blogster and hopefully Frs. Luis and Larry will be. There are a lot of social media sites to keep track of today, so we'll see where they go.


Peace and God's blessings.
