Congratulations friar Raad!

National Vocation Awareness Week 2021

A great vocation moment happened on Tuesday, November 9, 2021, as friar Raad Eshoo, OFM Conv. a Post-Novitiate student friar of our province who is in studies at The Catholic University of America (Washington, DC) was chosen by CatholicU Theology and Religious Studies as their  #STRS student feature spotlight. It was not only the Feast Day of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in Rome, on November 9th, but it is also National Vocation Awareness Week.

Please continue to keep in prayer – new vocations for the Franciscan Friars Conventual of Our Lady of the Angels Province, friar Raad, all of our friars in formation, and their formation directors. Also please remember to pray for all of the Solemnly Professed friars of our province and our Order around the world, that they may seek to live their baptismal promises more intensely and have the grace to persevere in their commitment to the Lord and serve with open hearts and willing spirit.
