Fr. Camillus Janas, OFM

My name is Camillus Janas, O.F.M. I was born in Manchester, N.H. and am 84 years old.  I've been privileged to be a Franciscan for 65 years and a priest for 57 years. I try to live the gospel and share it with others.  My hobby is: photography and occasional card making. My favorite color is red.
