A native of Kenton, Ohio, Br. Randy professed his Solemn Vows as a Conventual Franciscan on August 3, 1984.

Judy Ribar has joined the staff as Associate Director. Judy served for many years at Assumption High School as Director of Retreats and as a teacher.

Also, the Mondays at the Mount, a weekly Catholic faith enrichment program, will resume on September 17. The times for the program are 10:30 am and 7 pm. Popularized by the late Br. Bob Baxter OFM Conv., the Mount’s former Retreat Director who passed away earlier this year, the series now will be led by a variety of Friars and staff members.
