Friar Robert Amrhein, OFM Conv.

One of our 2022 Jubilarians, Friar Robert Amrhein, OFM Conv. has been working on a very special project over the past two years at our Syracuse, NY pastoral ministry – Assumption Church. In March 2020, he began a podcast to serve those unable to physically get to church, and he has now created over 700 episodes; not missing a single day.
Ordained to the priesthood on May 26, 1962, along with Fr. Ed Debono, OFM Conv. and Fr. Adam Keltos, OFM Conv., he will be celebrating 60 years as a friar priests, in just a few months. All three of these friars 1st professed their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, on the Feast of the Assumption – August 15, 1956. Friar Robert was also born on the Feast of the Assumption, in 1935. His younger brother, Friar James, is a friar brother of our province, who celebrated his 60th Profession Anniversary last year, the same year Friar Robert celebrated his 65th Profession Anniversary.
