God is Good!

Nineteen men joined the friars for a weekend retreat, exploring what life is like as a Conventual Franciscan Friar.

Called a Come and See Weekend, the retreat was for single men, aged 16 to 40, interested in learning about what it is like to seek God as a Franciscan, live in community, and share a life of service.

Several of our friars were present to spend time with and talk with the men who attended. There was time for prayer and reflection, as well as field trips to the Oblate School of Theology and the Lady of the Lake University. (Photos by Fr. Paul Schloemer, OFM Conv. and Second Year Postulant Tony Martinez)

Our next Come and See Weekend will be at Mount St. Francis, Indiana, April 4-6. For more information on Come and See Weekends please click here.
