New Minister General, Fr. Michael Perry

It may be old news but it’s still news.  The Order of Friars Minor elected a new Minister General of the Order. Indianapolis-born, Fr. Michael Perry took the reigns on May 22, 2013 in Rome.  

Making his solemn profession in 1981, he was ordained to the priesthood on February 6, 1984 at the age of 29.  He has served as a Provincial as well as Vicar General of the Order.  

We wish him heartfelt congratulations and God’s many blessings as we look forward to his work with the Custody of the Holy Land.
