On Monday August 19, 2019 the First Annual Franciscan Brothers Golf Outing was held at the Indian Hills Country Club in Northport, Long Island. A great turnout of 62 participants enjoyed a wonderful day including breakfast, golf and dinner. Brothers Greg and Geoffrey put their incredible golf skills on display!
At the morning registration, Br. Chris, Br. Etienne and Br. Greg each helped to greet the participants. Many old connections were revisited. It was very exciting to watch the interaction of the Brothers when a name came up from the past. Some were classmates or students or parents. They were a big help in setting the tone of the event.
Dinner was enjoyed and attended by Br. Gabriel, Superior General, Br. Joshua, Br. James, Br. Chris, Br. Etienne, Br. Geoffrey and Br. Greg. Their interaction amongst the audience was very inspiring. Thank you to Br. Gabriel who led all in the prayer of St. Francis. He also provided the audience with a brief history of the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn. Very informative as many hadn’t known the official origin of the community and its purpose.
Many came up to me after the event was over to say, what a wonderful day they had and we’re looking forward to next year. These men are good Christians who truly get the spirit of St Francis.
