William Hugo has ministered in initial formation since 1980 and taught the life of Francis of Assisi for over twenty-six years to Capuchins at various levels of formation and to Secular Franciscans. He was editor of The New Round Table, a journal of Capuchin spirituality and history, for seven years and is currently the Provincial Director of Initial Formation and Director of Postulants for the Midwest Capuchins.
"A Beginner's Workbook" is an invaluable guide ... Br. Bill Hugo takes pains not to interject his own person between the voyager and St. Francis. Rather, he provides the tools and maps out a route for one to discover for her/himself the person of Francis ... a further gift to the flowering of the Franciscan charism in our world. -- Br. John Corriveau, OFM, Cap. "Bishop of Nelson"
