Yep. Always amazed me how quickly things change when you drive past old mansions and then Seton Hall, crossing the border into the West Ward, which looks like the West Bank.

God bless these friars! And they put their own lives at risk to be that presence of the Lord in the midst of that neighborhood. May the angels protect them and may they bring many souls to God.

The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal are truly in the spirit of St. Francis.

God Bless the order that Father Benedict Groschel has founded, may it with God’s help bring hope and healing to a very troubled American city.

Regular recipients of the Grayfriar News will notice that the list of friaries and convents on the back page continues to grow. This summer the friars will open St. Patrick Friary in Limerick, Ireland and Sacred Heart Friary in Fort Worth, Texas. The friars in this photo received the customary “Mission Cross” for those who are assigned overseas. They are (l-r) Fr. Augustine Conner (England), Fr. Emmanuel Mansford (England), Fr. Juan Diego Sutherland (Honduras), Br. Dominic Bormans (England), and Fr. Paulus Tautz (Ireland). Br. Seraphim Roycourt, not pictured here, is also being sent to Limerick, along with three friars who are currently living in England. Four friar pioneers will begin the friary in Fort Worth. In our time it is difficult to say which countries are more “mission lands” in terms of preaching the Gospel, but no matter where it is, a new friary means many challenges and many graces.


Looking joyfully themselves is this gang of ten who recently made their first profession of vows. They are: (top row, l-r) Br. Gabriel Joseph Kyte, Br. Felice Maria Gavazzi, Br. Paolo Maria Kim, Br. Justin Jesúsmarie Alarcón; (center row) Br. Juanmaría Arroyo-Acevedo (standing at left), Br. Stephen Joseph Long, Br. Barnabas Joseph Leonard, Br. Nicholas Maria White, Br. John-Mary Johannssen; and (seated in front) Br. Ignatius Mary Shin. These capable young friars testify that God is still calling young people to make a generous gift of themselves in poverty, chastity, and obedience.


This year yielded the largest harvest yet of CFR friars ordained to the priesthood. Seven “hoods” were equally balanced by seven “men in black,” their classmates at St. Joseph Seminary in Yonkers, ordained for the Archdiocese of New York. This photo shows all 14 newly ordained at the liturgy at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. These new priests forever are (l-r) Fr. Louis Joseph Cottolengo Anderson; Fr. Gilberto Francisco Angel-Neri; Fr. Gabriel Mary Bakkar, CFR; Fr. Justin Francis Cinnante; Fr. Augustine Mary Conner, CFR; Fr. Douglas John Crawford; Fr. Brendan Thomas Gormley; Fr. Pio Maria Hoffmann, CFR; Fr. Kevin Peter Malick; Fr. Emmanuel Mary Mansford, CFR; Fr. Lawrence Joseph Schroedel, CFR; Fr. Jean-Paul Dominic Savio Soler; Fr. Juan Diego Sutherland, CFR; Fr. Paulus Maria Tautz, CFR.
