A Message from our Regional Minister
Dearest Franciscan Brothers and Sisters,
We just learned that the TOR Brothers in San Pedro will no longer run San Pedro.  They leave on July 1, 2019.  Therefore, take advantage of their few remaining programs
 ~ particularly the one the Hermitage that is especially for Secular Franciscans May 30 to June 2 - because there will be no more!
The Annual Meeting/Retreat this year was a FANTASTIC experience! … and we will try to put it on the website, etc. but the "experience" of actually being there cannot be repeated!  It is sad to think that next year's Annual meeting in San Pedro will not hold the same "charism" because the friars will be gone.
Let us pray for them!... and TODAY say a special prayer for Fr. Vianney because I learned today is his birthday!  
Peace & joy,
Marie Thomas, OFS = Five Franciscan Martyrs Regional Minister
