Our Lady of the Angels Province Vicar Provincial, Fr. Brad Milunski, OFM Conv. was invited to give the May 2016 St. Bonaventure Province Priesthood Ordination retreat for three of their friar deacons. Fr. Jim Ciaramitaro, OFM Conv., Fr. Edmond Des Forges, OFM Conv. and Br. Jim Dufresne, OFM Conv., living in St. Bonaventure Province’s St. Anthony Friary (Rockford, IL), provided outstanding hospitality and wonderful fraternity for the entire week’s retreat. The retreat participants, Fr. Brad and the local St. Bonaventure Province friars enjoyed a final dinner out, to celebrate Br. Jim’s 65th birthday.
Along with own Friar Nicholas Rokitka, OFM Conv., we lift up in prayer our three brothers from Saint Bonaventure Province, as they also prepare for their June Ordination.
