HNP Communications In the Headlines

Michael Blastic, OFM Conv., a faculty member of the Franciscan Institute at St. Bonaventure University for the past 10 years, received permission from the General Minister and Council on Sept. 13 to transfer from the Conventual Franciscans to the Order of Friars Minor in Holy Name Province.

Michael now enters a three-year probationary period in the province before making solemn profession in our Order.

“We heartily welcome Michael as a member of our brotherhood,” said John O’Connor.
