THE FRANCISCAN FRIARS OF THE HOLY NAME PROVINCE
Dear Community of St. Mary’s,
Your warm welcome for me as I came to speak to you about our annual Franciscan Challenge this past weekend was another example of the wonderful Franciscan hospitality for which you are known.
Your care and support of the Franciscan Friars who serve you now, and those to come in the future, is evidence of the love you have for those who have served in the past.
Thank you for your participation in our Provincial fundraising event. Your gift ensures that the Franciscan spirit will endure in our world and in our church.
Thank you for being a true instrument of peace to all the Friars and to those we serve.
A very special thanks also to Fr. Frank and all the Friars of the parish for sharing their home with me in a wonderful, fraternal way.
Fr. David Convertino, OFM
