Meeting of the CFC Formators

Wednesday, 04 June 2008 08:38

From May 27-30, 2008, a meeting was held at Franciscan Retreats in Prior Lake, Minnesota, USA, attended by almost all of the Formators for the United States.

Present also was the Vice Secretary for Formation in the Order, Friar Lindor Alcides Tofful. Several formation realities across the country were carefully examined. Sr. Lynn M. Levo, psychologist, developed the theme “Healthy Integrated Sexuality and Formation Praxis”, which gave a valuable input for the formation of the Formators themselves along with the opportunity to exchange ideas on this topic.

For Friar Lindor, it was the first chance for him to meet the Formators of this area and to begin to understand the formation reality. He visited St. Bonaventure Friary in Washington, D.C., where there are 3 postulants and 6 post-novitiate students living, along with 3 Formators: Friars Martin Day, John Koziol and Brad Milunski. He also had a personal visit with Friar Daniel Pietrzak, General Secretary for Formation, who at this time is living at the Provincial Curia in Ellicott City, due to his health.
