Our Blessed Agnellus of Pisa Custody’s St. Francis Friary in Wexford, Ireland recently added a new statue of Our Seraphic Father, St. Francis.
As seen in the above photo, the new statue was blessed on All Saints Day, by the Guardian, Fr. Aquino Maliakkal, OFM Conv. (center), after being installed by Fr. Robert Cojoc, OFM Conv. (right). The friars have made several improvements in their garden over recent months, as Friar Aquino added new plants, and Bro. Solanus Mary Simms, OFM Conv. (left). & Friar Robert added bird feeders and bird baths.
NOTE: Not only is our province home to friars living and serving from the East Coast of the USA or in studies in Chicago and California, it is also home to friars of our friars of our Canadian Delegation of St. Francis of Assisi (Ontario, CA) and those of our two Province Custodies: Immaculate Conception Custody in Brazil and Blessed Agnellus of Pisa Custody in Great Britain/Ireland. In addition, we have friars serving in Italy, Vatican City, Australia, Switzerland and Japan. If you are from the USA or Canada, and feel called to serve Christ as a Franciscan Friars Conventual in our province, contact our Vocation Director, Br. Nick Romeo, OFM Conv. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
