Father Kevin is a Franciscan Friar, Order of Friars Minor, Holy Name Province and a Roman Catholic priest. He holds an M.A. in theology from the Washington Theological Union, an M.A. in Latin from St. Bonaventure University and an M.A. in theology from Boston College. While on the faculty of Siena College he also worked in retreat ministry at the Dominican Retreat House, Schenectady, NY and taught theology to young Carthusian monks preparing for ordination at the Charterhouse of the Transfiguration, Arlington, VT. At Siena he was also chaplain to the college rugby club. From 1996 to 2014 he was stationed at St. Francis of Assisi church, ’31st St’, Manhattan where he was Director of its extensive and well-known Adult Education program. In it he taught many courses in spirituality, theology, church history, mysticism, some patristic figures as well as directing a book reading group. In those years he was also a confessor in the Church and did spiritual direction.

The Franciscan Center is located on eight acres along the eastern banks of the Hillsborough River. The Center came to fruition as a result of the spiritually unique mission of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, N.Y. In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, we welcome everyone who seeks spiritual growth through a deeper relationship with God in a place of peace, community, healing and joy.
