New postulant Roger Marker (left) began initial formation in earnest at St. Crispin Friary, St. Louis, on Sunday evening Sept. 17, when Fr. Frank Grinko, postulancy director and second provincial councilor, who was temporarily in charge of the province, marked him with a pendant Tau cross on behalf of Fr. Michael Scully. Friars from both houses in St. Louis were present, and a festive meal followed.
Roger enters the community from Colorado Springs, where he was employed by Quest as a national directory assistance agent. He was born 35 years ago in Walsenburg, Colo. Please keep him in your prayers!
