St. Francis LBI 90th Anniversary

Today, October 6, 2019, St. Francis, LBI, fraternity celebrated their 90th anniversary and were kind enough to invite me to celebrate with them.  The Mass, celebrated by Father John Frambes, OFM, was beautiful.  A wonderful reflection on the fraternity was given by Carole Infante, OFS.  And then there was food………….lots and lots of food! The fourth picture is of the remaining living ministers with yours truly and Father John.  And the ocean…………I can’t remember the last time I was at the shore so on my way home, I stopped to hear the seagulls and breathe in that salt air.   Thank you, LBI, for a truly great afternoon.  May you have 90 more anniversaries!
