NEW YORK — The summer issue of the Vocation Ministry’s quarterly publication Insight & Wisdom is now available online. By clicking on the Communications Page of the Province’s Web site, visitors can read this eight-page newsletter.

Featured topics in the Summer 2008 issue:
•    Ordination of five friars on May 24 – the largest Holy Name Province class in nearly 20 years. A short biography of each new priest is included.
•    Reflections from friars in formation about the April Papal Mass
•    Upcoming vocation weekends

The publication is produced by Vocation Director Brian Smail, OFM, and Assistant Carolyn Croke, with editing and design by Jocelyn Thomas and Phil Jacobs of HNP’s Communications Office.

Insight & Wisdom has been published for more than six years by the Province, and the past two years of issues are online. The publication is aimed at men discerning a call to the Franciscan way of life. It is distributed to all HNP friars and mailed to men who have contacted the Vocation Office.
