The student friars of our province are spending their summer break from study, living in community and serving with our friars in various ministries around the province: friar Antonio Moualeu, OFM Conv. – Atlanta, GA, friar Cristofer M. Fernández, OFM Conv. – Columbus, GA, friar Joseph Krondon, OFM Conv. – Pt Pleasant Beach, NJ, and friar Raad Eshoo, OFM Conv. – Port St. Lucie, FL.
Part of the ministry service friar Raad is experiencing while living in community with our friars of the St. Lucie Friary has been working with the Youth of St. Lucie Catholic Church during their July 12-16, 2021 Service Mission Week. This week of service affords the young people of the parish the opportunity to show mercy to those in need. The youth and their adult leaders, including friar Raad, start with Mass every day. Each morning, they serve in many different outreach facilities such as food banks, thrift shops, and feeding homeless. In the afternoon, they continue to help in the St. Lucie Parish Community, by doing yard work at parishioners’ houses, for those who need the extra help. It has been an enjoyable experience for friar Raad and he sends his blessings and well wishes to all.
