      Directions to St. Jerome
       

To be a Croatian Franciscan in this country is to be a man totally dedicated to God and to our people whom we have served so faithfully for the last eighty years. As we celebrate the 780th Anniversary of the death of our beloved Founder St. Francis (1226) and the 80th Anniversary of our beloved Custody of the Holy Family, we must keep in mind that we are God's instruments of our beloved Custody of the Holy Family, we must keep in mind that we are God's instruments of ace. We must therefore show:

Where there is hatred - love.

Where there is injury - pardon.

Where there is doubt - faith.

Where there is despair - hope.

Where there is darkness - light.

Where there is sadness - joy.

In this age of conflict, a Croatian Franciscan priest must always be a Man of God who loves his people, who admires their cultural heritage, who helps his people in every possible way, and who makes his Croatian people proud of their historical posterity.

A Croatian Franciscan priest is a man of action, a man of service and dedication, a man in love with Christ and the people under his care. He will continue, with the same spirit and renewed zeal, to serve our Creator and our people who are deserving of our love, dedication, and service.
