Fr. John O’Connor, OFM – Renaissance Friar
Our very own pastor Father John O’Connor OFM is truly a Renaissance friar– so says an article in the April issue of St. Anthony Messenger magazine. The article continues: “he’s worked elbow to elbow with real estate tycoons in New York City, run the corporation-like province of a major religious order, landed on an aircraft carrier, and barely escaped death on his first call as a fire department chaplain.
Yet, when asked what has given him the most satisfaction during his 50-plus years as a Franciscan, his response is simple and direct: ‘I would say it is the ministry I do as a Franciscan priest. It is to be there for people at the best of times, at the most difficult of times, and all kinds of times in between—but especially to be there with them at the most difficult time.” At 73, Father John is showing no signs of slowing down as he reflects on the rich experiences of his past and the challenges that lie ahead.” Read more here.
