National Vocation Awareness Week (November 6-12, 2022) may have ended, but our Vocation Awareness efforts are in effect year-round. Three of our friars serve as Vocation Directors: Br. Nicholas Romeo, OFM Conv. & Fr. Emanuel Vasconcelos, OFM Conv. on the East Coast of the USA, and Friar Reto Davatz, OFM Conv. in [Ontario] Canada, for our Province Delegation of St. Francis of Assisi.
In addition to serving in other ministries and administration duties of the province, through the year these friars visit with men in discernment, travel to conferences, hold parish information sessions, sponsor events, and work with the other Vocations Directors of the CFF (Conventual Franciscan Federation), to promote vocations.
For men on your own discernment journey, one tool promoted by our Vocation Office, is Franciscan Voice: an invaluable source of information about life as a Conventual Friar. The page on this site devoted to Vocations includes friar-produced videos, podcasts, and photo-essay blogs, representing the dynamic and life-giving quality of our life as a Franciscan Friar Conventual.
