Br. Francis John Wulf, OFH says, "I converted to the Catholic Church in 1988. I became a professed Secular Franciscan in April of 1991. I was the Formation Director of St. Anthony of Padua Fraternity of the local Secular Franciscans Order here in Lincoln Nebraska for over 12 years. I took about six years off just to be a member at large. Then 9 years ago I became Minister of the St. Anthony of Padua Fraternity where I was Minister for 6 years. Then I became the Treasurer of the Fraternity for 3 years. I recently stepped down to just be a member at large. My life has be richly blessed as a Franciscan. My vocation as a Franciscan started more of a Hollywood version of St. Francis until I had a chance to work in a homeless shelter/soup kitchen ran by the Sacred Heart Province Franciscans and saw what being a Franciscan was really about. Ever since then I've been lucky to be a member of OFS. I have never looked back. I have a full time job and that is my mission field, I am a Chef/Manager/Educator by trade. In my spare time I love to make blankets, jams/jellies and Rosary's."
