New PNG Viceprovincial Visits Mid-America
Fr. Peter Meis, who was elected Viceprovincial Minister of the friars in Papua New Guinea during their chapter in November, will arrive in Denver Feb. 2 and spend three weeks with the Mid-America friars and his family, while also checking with various medical personnel. Peter is on his way back from Rome, where he attended a workshop for new major superiors. A native of Kansas, Peter has been on mission in PNG since 1968 and most recently was pastor in Pureni for 11 years. Peter has done pastoral work in practically every area of the Mendi diocese, has taught at the major seminary in Bomana, and served six years (1989-1995) as the last superior regular and first viceprovincial minister of the Capuchins.
