Welcome to our new blog, “Be A Franciscan: News and Views From the Franciscan Vocation Ministry.”
Have you ever considered making a “life shift?” Do you feel a possible call to our Franciscan way of life?
My name is Fr. Brian Smail, OFM, vocation director for the Franciscans of Holy Name Province, the largest province of Franciscan friars in the United States.
I hope that our blog will provide you with current information, news, events, and reflections from the Vocation Office.
I invite you to visit our blog often and learn more about our way of life. Meet our friars up and down the east coast from New England to Florida and see the great diversity of our ministries. Learn about upcoming events such as “Come and See” weekends, and follow our student friars in formation as they prepare for an exciting and fulfilling future in the service of God’s people.
We welcome all your comments and suggestions. Again, welcome!
Fr. Brian Smail, OFM, Vocation Director
