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.
A holy hour for priestly and religious vocations will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, at the Poor Clares' Monastery of St. Clare, 200 Marycrest Drive in Oakville. To learn more about the life of a Poor Clare nun, see a St. Louis Review video at www.stlouisreview.com/Tkr.
