Br. Michael Potvin-Frost, OFH says, "I was baptized, confirmed, and raised in the Roman Catholic Church. I spent several years in seminary for the RC Church and was a postulant with the Capuchins. I left the seminary to pursue married life. At that time I also discovered the independent Catholic movement and was ordained a priest and then a bishop in an independent Catholic communion. After 23 years I decided to put aside ordained ministry and joined the local ELCA (Lutheran) congregation. After 2 years there I felt God calling me to return to the Roman Catholic Church. I feel like I've come home. I have been interested in the Franciscan charism from my early days in college and I enjoy time spent with God in nature and in centering prayer. I am seeking to deepen my prayer life so as to see more clearly the face of God in others. Pax et Bonum!"
