On July 6, 2022, the Minister Provincial of our Province, Fr. Michael Heine, OFM Conv. (pictured at left with the two postulants of our province – Cesar Perez and Adam Wozniak) was on hand at the Welcoming Ceremony, held in the Chapel of the Postulancy for the North American Provinces, in the St. Bonaventure Friary, in Chicago, IL.

Photo Cred: The top photo can be found on the Postulancy’s Facebook page; a great resource for prayerfully following along with this stage of the postulants’ formation, including their events and prayer life. The photo of Fr. Michael with the postulants of our province was taken by our own Post-Novitiate student friar Edgar Varela, OFM Conv., who is on summer assignment, residing in Chicago’s St. Bonaventure Friary.

Please continue to pray for all of the friars in formation, adding to your prayers these new postulants – and their formators, as they journey together through this initial stage of formation, discerning life as friars of our Order of Franciscan Minor Conventual.

For more information life as a Franciscan Friar Conventual or on Vocations, including links to the four provinces in North America, as well as to the friars in Malta and the Orient & Holy Land, visit FranciscanVoice.org.
