NEW YORK — Anthony LoGalbo has been appointed director of the newly-established Center for Franciscan Spirituality at St. Francis Church, 31st Street. Anthony comes to the center after 19 years as librarian for the Franciscan Institute at St. Bonaventure University.

Along with a degree in spirituality and a year-long sabbatical at the Franciscan Center in Canterbury, he has many years of experience in formation and spiritual direction, administration and supervision that will serve the center well, according to Dominic Monti. His assignment will be effective in the spring of 2007 when the center officially opens.

The Center for Franciscan Spirituality offers individual and group spiritual direction, faith sharing and lectio divina in the Franciscan tradition, and programs in spirituality and the arts which will further the understanding and living of the Franciscan Tradition in urban life. Currently, Mary Petrosky, FMM and Anthony Carrozzo provide spiritual direction in the center for an increasing number of people who seek this service.
