Franciscan

Planting trees rooted in his love for creation

For Fr. Kenan Freson, who planted most of the trees you see around St. Anthony Shrine, every day is Earth Day. And Arbor Day as well. In honor of those upcoming observances (Earth Day April 22, Arbor Day the 27th), we asked Kenan how his love of nature mushroomed into a one-man mission to reshape the landscape at the Shrine by planting trees. His responses are recorded in this short video.
