Just FYI------------------------
Dear Brothers and Sisters,


May the peace of the Lord be with you.


Attached* please find the announcement of the Secular Franciscan Conference sponsored by the Francsican Institute at St. Bonaventure University in Olean, New York.  The dates are July 13 -15, 2018.  Arrivals can be Thursday evening, July 12th.


The title is, “Becoming Prayer, Becoming Presence: A Workshop for Secular Franciscans” and Br. Richard Hendricks, OFM Cap. is the facilitator.  He is from Ireland.


Please note that the dates are the same for the Summer Seminar at St. Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania.


I am sure that with over 12,000 Secular Franciscans in the USA, we can fill both programs successfully.  The universities need to work events around their campus schedules as well as around the travel schedules of the presenters/facilitators.


Please do spread the work about both programs.  We hope to fill both abundantly!  Thank you.


Mary Frances Charsky
