Life as a Franciscan Friar
Interested in life as a Franciscan Friar? Has one of the friars who has ministered/worked in Kedron over the years inspired you to consider a similar vocation either as a Franciscan brother or priest? If so ... have a chat to Stephen or Joseph, or one of the Friars from Adele Street. Next weekend we celebrate “Vocations Sunday”. Let us pray for vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life.
