Br. David Liedl's 25th Anniversary of Vows

On August 3rd the Franciscan Friars, TOR, Province of the Immaculate Conception gathered to celebrate a solemn Mass in celebration of Br. David Liedl's 25th anniversary of living the vowed and Franciscan life. Anyone who has lived with David for any length of time over the past 25 years is well aware of his many gifts and commitment to living the Franciscan life with deep honesty, insight, and integrity. David's gifts include knowledge and love of the Franciscan tradition, liturgy, music, cooking, art (especially pottery), gardening, presenting at spiritual retreats, and spiritual direction (among others). In the past six years he has served the community with distinction as a vocation and formation director. Our community rejoices on this occasion and gratefully receives David's recommitment to our way of life. May he, and we, be blessed with another 25 years (at least)! Pat, TOR
