For the past three years, Fr. Emmanuel Acquaye, OFM Conv., a Ghanan friar of the Provincial Custody of St. Anthony of Padua (under the Italian St. Anthony of Padua Province), has been living with the friars of our province, in the St. Joseph Cupertino Friary (Ellicott City, MD), while studying full time at Loyola University Maryland, and assisting the friars of our ministry of The Shrine of St. Anthony. It is with great joy that we celebrate Friar Emmanuel receiving his Masters of Arts in Pastoral Counseling during Loyola University Maryland’s 164th Commencement Exercises, Saturday, May 21, 2016, at Royal Farms Arena, in Baltimore, MD!
He is grateful for the support of the friars of Our Lady of the Angels Province, particularly those of St. Joseph Cupertino Friary. Video of event: He crosses the stage around 2:24:10.
