Fr. John O'Connor, OFM

From 2005 to 2014, Fr. John served as Provincial Minister  of the Holy Name Province of Franciscan Friars, continuing its legacy as one of FMS’ greatest partners and benefactors. Because of his deep commitment to mission and lay partnerships, he was a champion of FMS long before joining the board. In a newly-created executive position within the Order of Friars Minor, he works directly with the Minister General to lead the funding of missions and formation of friars in developing countries. The Brooklyn native also serves in pastoral ministry at St. Francis Church in Triangle, Va., and has been a major contributor to youth ministry and Catholic education at a national level.
