Mendicant Friars

The Dominican novices from the West Coast Province, along with their Novice Director, Fr. Anthony (serving for 18 years in the position!), passed through our three Franciscan Novitiate houses (Observants, Capuchins and Conventuals) this week to share in the fraternity. The Conventuals hosted a cookout on Saturday afternoon (Feb 24th), and in between the hot dogs and hamburgers — and the freshly squeezed lemonade from our own trees — the novices asked each other the perennial questions: “How much PM do you get?” and “How do you keep those white habits so clean?” We’re definitely hoping to get together again for a few shared conferences before the end of this novitiate year.
