FRIARS ON RETREAT
Father Robert (Bobby) Barbato of the California Province of Capuchins was the director for the fraternity retreat in both Hawaii and Guam this year. It was Fr Bobby's first time to Guam, but he knows many of our friars, having studied in Berkeley, CA around the same time as some of our friars. Fr Bobby has devoted many years to Franciscan studies and is now on the formation team at the Order's novitiate in Santa Ynez, CA.
The first stop was Hawaii, where Fathers Paulo Kosaka, Gordon Combs and Michel Dalton minister. They came together for one week to refresh themselves spiritually.
Traveling over the weekend, Fr Bobby flew to Guam to conduct the same retreat one more time for the Guam friars.
Thank you, Fr Bobby, for giving us your time and spiritual reflections! God bless you!
