Fr. Miguel Briseño
“I decided religious life was maybe something to look at,” he says. “So I talked to a vocation director, Bro. Timothy Unser, and went on a vocation retreat.” Brother Timothy encouraged Miguel to try Franciscan life. “I knew I needed to look at this life more in depth and the only way I was going to be able to do that was to join.” Although he had fleeting doubts and questions, Miguel says his becoming a member of the Conventual Franciscans was a natural progression from joining to “see what would happen” until he made his final vows on August 2, 1987.
