My special gratitude to Fr. Francis DiSpigno, OFM, who saw in me the potential needed to perform this job, and also to Fr. Greg Jakubowicz, OFM, who expanded my responsibilities and trusted my judgement and insight about various situations.”
“In every path that God leads my life to, I always try to get the best to take with me. The treasures that I gathered during my time at Holy Name Province are invaluable.
“I will pray for each one of the friars’ discernment and also for new vocations. I am sure a smile will show in my face every time I remember your joyful Franciscan laughing because I know that is the true Franciscan spirit that I also happen to share with you. Peace and All Good.”
