During the Post-Novitiate stage of formation, our student friars not only engage in furthering their education, but also participate in active ministry. We currently have six student friars in study in Washington, DC and two in study in San Antonio, TX.
Both friar Antonio Moualeu, OFM Conv. (below far right) and friar Fabian Adderley, OFM Conv. (2nd from right) are living in a large community of student friars from several provinces, in the Post-Novitiate San Damiano Friary (San Antonio, TX), under the direction of Our Lady of the Angels Province Friar Gary Johnson, OFM Conv. and Our Lady of Consolation Province Friar Andy Martinez, OFM Conv.
While friar Antonio’s doctoral studies do limit his time available to serve in ministry, friar Fabian has been serving very actively at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, the only African American parish in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. The pastor, the Very Rev. Kevin Fausz, CM, VU (at center above) was inducted into the Black Worship XI – Clergy Hall of Fame, on February 24, 2020. Our friars Antonio and Fabian were able to join in the celebration.
