LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. — The editor of The Provincial Annals requests that all news and photos for the next edition be submitted to him by May 10. Julian Davies, OFM, asks guardians, pastors and directors to “compile an account of your ministry for the year 2013. Be sure to include some photos.”
Submissions can be made both electronically and by hard copy, said Julian, who has been editing this Provincial resource for more than 30 years. The reports should describe friar life and ministries.
The reports need not be lengthy, Julian said, adding: “Please send your material electronically, if you can, including a hard copy.” Friars with high-resolution photos of events are encouraged to submit them.
The 2013 edition of the Annals includes news about major 2012 Provincial events along with updates about ministries. They include the solemn professions of Francis Critch, OFM, Mario Gomez, OFM, Percy Osorio,OFM, and Edgardo Zea, OFM, and the priestly ordinations of Francis, Stephen DeWitt, OFM, and Daniel Horan, OFM. The edition also includes articles about the 2012 jubilee celebration and recipients of the HNP Francis Medal.
The Provincial Annals, a softcover publication of more than 100 pages, is distributed to HNP friars every autumn.
