Published:  May 2017


The Catholic Church is an institution that evokes wonder, curiosity, awe, and reverence, but also hurt, confusion, fear, and anger. Franciscan friar and priest, Fr. John Anglin, OFM, presents a picture of the Church not through its institutional structures, but through the lived experience of the members that he has encountered on his extensive travels during more than forty years of active ministry.

In The Wandering Friar, you meet the rich and the poor; urbanites, suburbanites, and country dwellers; white, black, and brown folks; some of strong faith, others of weak or growing faith—but all of them Catholic. Fr. Anglin also talks his early life and how he came to grow into an exciting and rewarding ministry.
