May the Lord give you peace.

Welcome to my web page. 

I am a Franciscan Friar of Holy Name Province, pastor of St. Patrick-St. Anthony Parish and Director of the Franciscan Center in Hartford, CT.    This is a vibrant and dynamic faith community.  It is also a community of choice for many people.  Few people live in downtown Hartford, so many people commute to St Patrick-St. Anthony.  

I have begun to put some links on the page and so you will find the Poor Clares from Wilmington and Chesterfield as well as Holy Name Province and  St. Patrick-St. Anthony Parish.

On this web page I would like to share some of my reflections and thoughts.  A number of homilies have been podcast to the page as well as reflections on a variety of situations and perhaps in the future there will even be some thoughts on food and menu’s.  These are the things I enjoy.  I hope you enjoy your time here and know that there will be changes.

If you look at the top of the page you will see Welcome, Blog, Podcast.  To read some of my reflections simply select Blog.  You will also see podcast.  Selecting podcast will bring up the series of homiletic reflections that have been posted.

The podcasts may be a bit lengthy and thus take some time to download.  

Let me know what you think.
