HNP Today’s Top Stories of 2019

Maria Hayes Around the Province

NEW YORK – 2019 was another year of change for Holy Name Province.

The friars prepared to conclude the HNP Fraternal Ecology process after two years of evaluating each of its 30 fraternities-in-mission, and closed Holy Name Friary, its skilled nursing facility in Ringwood, N.J. They also gathered with other friars from across the United States in a historic, first-of-its-kind US-6 Chapter of Mats in Denver, another milestone in the ongoing Revitalization and Restructuring Process. As in most years, there were ordinations and professions to celebrate, and jubilarians to fête.

The Communications Office covered these and a wide variety of other topics. Below are the 25 most-read articles that were published last year.
