NEW YORK — Provincial Minister John O’Connor, OFM, has been chosen as one of three members of the administrative council of the Order’s Jubilee Fund for Formation and Evangelization. The announcement was received by the Province’s Communications Office earlier this month.
John will work with two other provincial ministers, Michael Coops of the Province of the Immaculate Conception of the BMV, England, and Pedro Ruano Santateresa of the Province of St. Gregory the Great in Spain. The fund is used each year by the general minister of the Order to help with projects for the poor around the world, John said.
The Jubilee Fund was established in March 2000 in celebration of the Jubilee of the Consecrated Life. A letter from Giacomo Bini, OFM, describes its background in the link below.
