We will offer additional Gather and Discern events in Fall 2022 and Winter 2023.

Meeting Information

The fraternal gatherings will provide an opportunity for friars to foster relationships with their brothers from different provinces, to share their stories and dreams for the future, and to be consulted about plans for the formation of the new province. The fraternal gatherings will begin with dinner on the day of arrival and conclude at noon on the final day.

Sleeping Room Information

The US-6 will be sponsoring accommodations. Each friar will be assigned his own private room. Special accommodations will be provided for those who require them.


The closest airport for the Danville gathering is the Oakland International Airport. Friars will arrive on June 21 beginning at 4:30 p.m. and depart June 24 at noon.

Friars who are arriving by plane are asked to arrange their own transportation to and from the airport via rideshare apps like Uber or Lyft, or by taxi.  Taxis serving the Oakland International Airport include Friendly Cab [510-536-3000] or Veteran’s Cab [510-533-1900]. Friars will be connected with other friars who are arriving at a similar time in case they would like to share a cab.

Each fraternity is asked to cover the cost of transportation. If you require financial assistance, please contact Larry Ford at
