FORT LAUDERDALE | Capuchin Friars from the New Jersey province have erected a new friary, named after St. Pio and located in a former convent belonging to St. Jerome Parish in Fort Lauderdale. Two Capuchin Franciscans have already arrived: Father Nicholas Mormando, a former provincial, will serve as Guardian of the friary and minister in the area as a hospital chaplain. Brother Lombardo D’Auria will serve as director of Faith Formation at St. Jerome School. A third friar is expected to join them in a few months.
