Fr. Brian Smail, OFM will be ending his full time service at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi at the end of this month.  Fr. Brian has been asked to minister in the Provincial Office. He will continue to live in the friary on 31st street with the friars and he plans to continue to  help out in the church as he is able.

We are very grateful for his many years of ministry with us at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi. In addition to presiding at the Eucharist and hearing Confession, Fr. Brian also served our community by providing spiritual direction and by leading our bereavement ministry.

We have been blessed by his presence and ministry and we wish him luck with his new responsibilities serving the whole province.
