On Saturday, November 28, our province inducted another wonderful young man as an affiliate of the order: Mr. Mohamed Qualander. Mohamed has been a long time friend of the friars since he was a young teenager. Since that time, he was a dedicated assistant to the friars of Immaculate Conception Friary, and was an indispensable aid in the running of the friary. He has since been a dedicated friend of the province and has consistently served as Master of Ceremonies for important province liturgies. Mohamed is an invaluable gift to the friars of Immaculate Conception and the province at large, and we are happy and blessed to have him as an affiliate. Congratulations, Mo! Peace be with you!

Our Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis will celebrate its 100 anniversary at a Mass on Saturday, September 7th at Immaculate Conception Parish in the Bronx. All are invited to the Mass. Main celebrant will be Archbishop Charles Chaput, O.F.M.Cap. and joined by other bishops as well as the Minister General and mostly all of the friars from the province.

One of our friars, Fr. Vincent, is a popular, well sought-after retreat master and teacher of spiritual direction. He travels all around the country. His ministry is usually classified as "itinerant preacher" and he's very good at what he does! He's traveled as chaplain with the NY Giants, and was involved in the chaplaincy of the NY Yankees as well.
