Br. Haddy, tor, OFH is a professed member of the Franciscans of the Holy Spirit and serves as its vicar. He is a native of the Dominican Republic and has always had a calling for religious life. His spiritual journey took him to try the Augustinians Recollects and later the Schöenstatt Movement. After moving to the USA he continued his spiritual growth by joining in Cursillo, the Legion of Mary and the Third Order Secular of Francis (TOS).
He has earned a B.A. in Religious Studies and Philosophy with a minor in Spanish Literature and an M.Div. in Systematic Theology and Sacred Scripture from Seton Hall University in South Orange NJ.
His ministerial work has included pastoral care of the sick, working with HIV/AID patients, adult Catechisis, Pre-Cana preparation and liturgical coordination and planning, and is currently the Master of Ceremonies for the Diocese of Florida of the Communion of Conciliar Catholic Churches. He hopes to focus his ministry in creating sacred spaces for prayer and meditation and assisting others in exploring the contemplative aspect of Franciscan spirituality.
