Br. Albert Cioffoletti, OFH says, "I am a 'retired registered nurse' with advanced degrees in (MA) Religious Studies from St. Joseph College-Seminary, Yonkers, NY. Born & raised in the Roman Catholic tradition; I am an active member of Blessed Sacrament Church, New Rochelle, NY. I have been a 'son' of Saint France since High School (joined the SFO 1957; later entered the Franciscan Brothers of the Poor (CFP) as a novice 1968). Returned to 'secular life' in 1968 and entered the 'nursing field' to use my talents is 'caring for the sick' ... recently have become interested in the Franciscan Hermit religious concept."
