In 2006, Richard Goodin graduated with a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Kentucky, where he also served as the president of Farmhouse Fraternity.
Looking back, he said fraternity life helped him make the transition into a new life as a Franciscan friar and, more recently, priest.
“From one fraternity to another,” Fr. Goodin said. “And we do call our way of living as Franciscans a fraternity.”
