Save the Date: 2013 Friar Events

HNP Communications Around the Province

The Province’s Ongoing Formation Committee is asking that friars mark their calendars for two events next year. They are among the initiatives being developed by the committee, chaired by Christopher Keenan, OFM, the Province’s moderator of ongoing formation.

A Friar Assisi Pilgrimage, led by F. Edward Coughlin, OFM, and Thomas Hartle, OFM, is scheduled for May 16 to 27, 2013. Friars who have recently completed the Provinces SPUFY program, for those solemnly professed under five years, and friar jubilarians are encouraged to consider participating, Edward said.

A conference titled “Responding to God’s Love” is being planned for June in Denver. Ed Coughlin, the organizer, said the “weeklong event will highlight the Franciscan impact on the development of moral theology.” Friars interested in the conference should contact Christopher at
