  • As we begin this Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Third Order Regular Franciscans are excited to provide you a video series created by one of our Friars.  Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR has been a Friar for 25 years and has developed a fourteen part video series aimed at helping you grow in your relationship with the Holy Spirit (or the Wild Goose as the ancient Celts referred to the Spirit).  The Holy Spirit is essential in everyone's life. In our Rule of life is states that "they should desire one thing alone, namely, the Spirit of God at work within them." (Article 32)   We invite you to join Fr. Dave for a wonderful adventure of discovering a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit.
