Other Events In Which to Join Us:

 August 7, 2018 Solemn Vows of Friar Israel 

At 7PM Friar Israel Arauz-Rosiles will profess his Solemn Vows, that is for life!!! As you know these vows are the “Evangelical Counsels” or Poverty, Chastity and Obedience.  This event is an excellent way to learn more about our Franciscan Spirituality, and life style. Also a great way to meet many Friars.  Please join us as all are invited, but it would be best if you contact Fr. Paul before hand so I can make plans to spend some time with you!
