LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. — The deadline to submit materials for the next issue ofThe Provincial Annals is fast approaching. Julian Davies, OFM, editor, asks that all news reports and photos to be considered for inclusion be submitted no later than May 1.

Summaries of events from 2012 should be brief and should focus on friar ministry and life. If friars have high-resolution photos of events, they are encouraged to submit them. Materials can be sent electronically or through the mail.

The Annals, a compilation of events from the previous year, is distributed to HNP houses each autumn. Julian, a philosophy professor at Siena College, has been editor of The Provincial Annalssince the 1980s.

The 2012 edition of The Provincial Annals includes reports on the 2011 Provincial Chapter, biographies of the new councilors, recipients of the HNP Francis Medal and descriptions of formation events — the ordination of Cidouane Joseph, OFM, and Erick López, OFM, in May at Holy Name Church in New York City, and the solemn profession ofStephen DeWitt, OFM, and Daniel Horan, OFM, in August at St. Francis of Assisi Church in New York City.
