Past President Fr. Terence Henry Named Franciscan University Chancellor

From the Franciscan University of Steubenville press release on Friday, June 7:

Father Sean O. Sheridan, TOR, president of Franciscan University of Steubenville, today announced the appointment of Father Terence Henry, TOR, as chancellor of the University. As chancellor, Father Henry will work closely with the University Advancement Department, including the Alumni Relations Office and the Development Office, Father Sheridan said.

“Father Terry will serve as a Franciscan University ambassador and meet with alumni, assist with fundraising efforts, and represent the University at certain events,” said Father Sheridan, who began serving as president of Franciscan University on June 1.

...Father Henry completed 13 years as the University’s president on May 31 and will assume his new responsibilities as chancellor immediately.

“I am happy to be of continued service to the mission of Franciscan University. I am particularly glad that my duties include spending more time with alumni and friends of the University,” Father Henry said. “They beautifully live out the Gospel in their families, careers, parishes, and communities, so it is always a joy to be with them.”

Father Henry will also take on the position of local minister of Holy Spirit Friary at Franciscan University on July 1.

...As local minister, Father Henry will oversee the 20 priests and brothers who work as administrators, professors, pastoral ministers, and staff at Franciscan University.

According to the Rule and Life of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis, local minsters should be “servants of all” the friars and should “visit, admonish, and encourage them with humility and charity.”
