“…I Jeffrey R. Wilson, in the presence of the assembled
friars and into your hands, Father Patrick,
vow to live in obedience, in poverty, and in chastity
according to the Rule and Life
of the Brothers and Sisters of the
Third Order Regular of Saint Francis…”
The friars of the Florida region, along with our Provincial Minister, Fr. J. Patrick Quinn, T.O.R., gathered to witness Brother Jeffrey R. Wilson renew his vows as a Franciscan Friar on May 14, 2012 (Feast of St. Matthias) at San Pedro Retreat Center in Winter Park, FL. The ceremony took place during the celebration of Evening Prayer. Afterwards, the celebration continued at San Pedro Friary with a festive meal and socializing.
Brother Jeffrey first professed simple vows on May 30, 2009. He is studying for ordination to the priesthood and is beginning his third year of theology at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
