Friar Jerome Westernberg is a Franciscan Conventual from Australia. St. Bonaventure Province in the United Sates supports the friars in their Australian ministries. Friar Jerome met the Franciscans Conventual actually in Sydney. They served at the parish where his parents worshipped.

Jerome noticed immediately how easy it was to talk with them and how dedicated they are to the Gospel life. Coming from a family of many brothers, Jerome found that when he was with the Franciscans it was just like being with his family. The friars were immediately supportive of Jerome. They listened to his stories and urged him to follow his calling.
