Brother Peter Dungey, OFH is a retired Priest from the Independent Sector Formally of St John the Divine.
Sister Catherine Levison, OFH says, "I am under the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience and I am a community member of The Brothers and Sisters of Charity which was begun by a Franciscan Monk. Our community has a hermitage for the monastic members and they have a "domestic" branch that I am a member of. Our community wears a habit and a heart Tao.
I am a hermit, called to a hermit's life and have contact with people on the weekends.
I love contemplation, Christian meditation, prayer and Bible reading.
My life is defined by silence and solitude.
My beliefs follow the book, "The Cloud of Unknowing" and my faith is Bible based. I am strongly in favor of Christians from ALL walks of life becoming familiar with I Corinthians chapters one and three and Ephesians chapter four and learning to live as one body and one bride of Christ. We are not divided no more than Christ is divided."
Sister Rosemarie A. O'Malley, OFH writes. "Since the age of 13, I have dreamed and desired to serve our Lord. Life's circumstances prevented me from my calling at this early age. I deeply respect and honor the Franciscan way of life since I am a true humanitarian and have always demonstrated service to others throughout my entire life. I am a Veteran of the U.S. Navy; and also served as a flight attendant with Eastern Airlines. In addition, I have served in many volunteer roles. In January 2016, I begin my Master's program at Argosy University in Organizational Leadership; to be followed by my Ph.D. in the same field. My dissertation topic will be "Organizational Leadership within the Religious Life." I am a Cum Laude graduate in my AAS and BAS degree programs. Loving and caring for my fellow man is a driving force in my life; and allowing each and everyone a loving, caring touch in the most simplistic manner while exemplifying humility is how I have been called to serve. I am a parish member of St. John of the Cross Catholic Church in Vero Beach, FL where I am a member of the choir, Women's Guild, prayer shawl knitting member for ill members of our church, homeless ministry, Eucharistic Minister, as well as am highly involved in Evangelism to spread the word of our God to others. In addition, I am a member of the Military Moms Prayer Group in my community where we pray for all of our active military members. I desire to serve our Lord within the Order of Franciscan Hermits which undoubtedly would be an honor to be involved with a wonderful group of spiritual like-minded individuals."
