St. Francis wrote: “It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.”
At the start of a new year, the friars of Holy Name Province recognize the 2012 jubilarians, who have walked and preached around the world for 25 years or more, and remember the friars who passed away in 2011.
The Province recognizes the 33 friars celebrating anniversaries in 2012.
These jubilarians have served in parishes, on campuses, overseas and along the East Coast. They are:
