(friar Manny) during the Friary Community Eucharist. The family of friar Manny was visiting from Olean, NY for the weekend and several of his brothers were able to participate. Three of friar Manny’s brothers provided the music and lectored, while another served. Friar Manny spent the first part of the summer assisting at our Senior Friars’ Residence. He will next be assigned to Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore.
