Friary blessed with veteran priest’s cheerful presence

Franciscan Father Bernardine Hahn enjoys keeping a prayerful presence at St. Anthony’s Friary in south St. Louis. In his assignments, including as a chaplain at the Poor Clares in south St. Louis County, he was known for his evangelizing spirit, simple joy and peaceful presence.

The Franciscan Friary on Meramec Street in south St. Louis is a happy place, perhaps due in part to the smiles and wise observations of a priest with 72 years of experience, having served as a pastor, pastoral assistant and chaplain in Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas.
