NEW YORK — Family, friends and partners-in-ministry of the seven friars commemorating jubilees of profession in 2011 will gather at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Manhattan in June for the Province’s annual celebration.
The 2011 event is scheduled for June 30 at 5:30 p.m.
In addition, the Province’s Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Office will be hosting its annual JPIC Local Contacts retreat this year at the St. Francis Retreat Center in Ringwood, N.J.
Spaces for the June 10 to 12 gathering are limited, so Russell Testa, director of the JPIC Office, encourages early registration. Additional information is available on a flyer.
