Sunday, April 23rd marked the 25th Anniversary of our provincial executive assistant, Margaret Milizzo. Her wonderful disposition, brilliant smile and extraordinary patience has guided and assisted our friars for over a quarter of a century in so many varied ways!

Thank you Margaret and Happy Anniversary from all the friars of the Stigmata Province!
