Province of Saint Barbara Centennial Celebration
The year 2015 marks the centennial of the Province of Saint Barbara. The chapters of this 100-year story focus on the friars’ relationships, participation, and partnerships for service. In celebrating the past 100 years of the Province, we will take a closer look at the daily work of the friars within this community through a traveling exhibition presented at locations throughout the Province, highlighting major movements and milestones and presenting the lives and stories of our brothers committed to the needs of those inside and outside the Province.
Join us as we celebrate together 100 years of Prayer, Fraternity, Joy, and Service. Accompany us on our journey with hope for the future.
Our schedule of the celebration at the St. Francis Retreat Center is as follows:
A DAY OF RECOLLECTION AND A FIRST FRIDAY CELEBRATION
