ST. MEINRAD, Ind. — The friars of St. John the Baptist Province gathered for their mid-term chapter last week at St. Meinrad Archabbey in southern Indiana.

They elected new members of their council — Br. Michael Dubec, OFM, Br. Vincent Delorenzo, OFM, Fr. William Farris, OFM, and Fr. Mark Soehner, OFM — and coped with a thunderstorm that caused a 15-hour power outage.

The May 23 to 27 assembly opened with a report by provincial minister Fr. Jeffrey Scheeler, OFM, that emphasized appreciation for the province’s blessings and its wealth of talent.

A detailed article, complete with more than 40 photos, appears in the May 28 issue of SJB News Notes, the weekly publication of the province based in Cincinnati.
