The wellness subcommittee, a subsidiary of the fraternal life committee, met for the first time at the Provincial Offices on Feb. 6.
After shared prayer, John O’Connor addressed the group and expressed his wishes for the direction of the subcommittee. We then shared the expertise that each brings to the tasks at hand. After lunch, we began brainstorming about areas of concern we saw throughout the province. However, we noted immediately that we do not want to “impose our views,” but will be soliciting input from the friars at large.
Present were Joe Nangle, Alan Thomas, Jim Kelly (Chair), Eric Carpine and Maureen Deutermann, RN. Excused were Dan Nelson and Vicki Masterpaul, OSF, RN.
