USA: Visitation of the Province of St. Joseph of Cupertino

From February 20 until March 15, 2017, Friar Jude WINKLER, the Assistant General for the Conventual Franciscan Federation (CFF), having been delegated by the Minister General, Friar Marco TASCA, conducted a general canonical visitation of the Province of St. Joseph of Cupertino, California, USA, in preparation for their Ordinary Provincial Chapter in April of 2018.  

The Province has six friaries in the United States (five in California and one in Nevada) and two friaries in Vietnam (which will be visited in the early months of 2018). 
The friars of this Province are mostly engaged in parish ministry, caring for four parishes and one cathedral (in Reno, Nevada). Friar Jude met with the Province Definitory at the beginning and the end of the visitation.
