The Novitiate Class of 2018-2019: Friar Matt, Friar Joe, Friar Raad, Friar Peter, Friar Kyle and Friar Antonio

Over a year ago, on October 19, 2017 our friars of the Blessed Agnellus of Pisa Custody (The Greyfriars of Great Britain/Ireland) welcomed Kyle Banks (of England), and Peter Flynn (of Ireland) into the postulancy program. After spending last year in the community at The Friary, Oxford, joining in with the life of the friars and deepening their understanding of religious life in preparation for the Novitiate and being vested in the habit of our Order, Friar Kyle Banks, OFM Conv. and Friar Peter Flynn, OFM Conv. have joined three Novices of our province, Friar Antonio Moualeu, OFM Conv., Friar Raad Eshoo, OFM Conv & Friar Joseph Krondon, OFM Conv., and Friar Matthew Bradley, OFM Conv. of St. Bonaventure Province, at the Novitiate of the Order of Friars Minor (Franciscan Friars Conventual) for the USA, East Canada, Great Britain & Ireland, Australia, located in Arroyo Grande, California.
