The Provincial Administration has announced news about three men.

Camilo Garcia withdrew from the postulancy program at Holy Name College, Silver Spring, Md., on April 20. He will be returning to Medellín, Colombia, where his family lives. While Camilo enjoyed his time with Holy Name Province, he felt the need to be closer to his family and to have some time for continued growth as a layman.

Percy Osorio-Palpán, OFM, petitioned for, and has been granted, dispensation from solemn vows. He is now separated from the Order and released from all obligations deriving from his profession. Percy is currently living in Lima, Peru, where he is completing his degree at the Catholic University. He hopes to use his skills to work in community/human development in the Amazon region.

James Toal, OFM, has been assigned to Holy Name Friary in Ringwood, N.J., effective March 31.
