The Author

My name is Casey Cole, OFM, and I am a vowed religious in the Order of Friars Minor, commonly known as “the Franciscans.”

Before entering the Order, I attended Furman University where I graduated with a degree in Religious Studies and a minor in Poverty Studies. While there, I spent most of his time outside of studies involved in campus ministry and playing for the university’s club baseball team.

In August 2017, I professed my final vows within the Order of Friars minor, permanently professing myself to this life. I am in training to be ordained a priest, currently studying theology at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
