On January 27-31, 2020, Friar Jude Winkler conducted a workshop on the Letters of St. Paul for the postulants of the Conventual Franciscan Federation (CFF). The workshop was held at the St. Bonaventure Friary in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

The CFF currently has four postulants. Two are from the Province of Our Lady of the Angels in the USA, one is from the Province of St. Bonaventure in the USA and one is from the Province of St. Joseph of Cupertino in the USA. The Program Directors are Friars Brad MILUNSKI and Paul SCHNEIDER. In addition to classes offered by the two directors, the postulants have participated in workshops on Peace, Justice and Integrity of Creation (Friar Michael LASKY); Franciscan topics, e.g. St. Bonaventure, Blessed John Duns Scotus, St. Angela of Foligno (Friars Arturo FELIX and James CHIARMITARO); Marian topics (Friar Christopher SHARROCK), and the Constitutions (Friar Timothy KULBICKI in a workshop presented at Marytown [near Chicago]), etc.
