Bro Jim Moore, OFM Conv, the founder of FrancisCorps was one of the friars elected to leadership for the newly created Province of Our Lady of the Angels of the Franciscan Friars Conventuals.

The Franciscans gathered in Buffalo for a gathering called a “chapter” which reviews the past 4 years, elects leaders and sets priorities for the future.

The Chapter was presided at by Friar Marco Tasca, the Minister General of the Order and together with the friars elected the following to leadership:

Friar James McCurry as Minister Provincial

Friar Brad Milunski, as Vicar Provincial

Friar Richard Jacob Forcier as Secretary

The leadership of the friars also includes a Defintiory which is a group of friars which act as a “council” for advising the Minister Provincial and also at times as a “college” which means they together with the Minister exercise authority.

Friar Anthony Kall, as Definitor

Friar Jude Surowiec, as Definitor

Friar James Moore, as Definitor

Friar Donal Grzymski, as Defintor

Friar Michael Heine, as Definitor

With these elections FrancisCorps is well represented at the leadership of the community. Congratulations to the elected friars and a promise of prayer from all of our volunteers, alums and friends.
