Hans van Bemmel, OFM, is a jolly Franciscan from Holland. He came to San Francisco a year ago to improve his English and fell in love with our Dining Room volunteers and guests. He wrote a small booklet in Dutch using his pictures about his experiences at St Anthony’s, which he sells in his retreat house gift shop in Holland. In this way Hans has raised over $6,000 for us. He is quite a salesman!
For his vacation this year, he couldn’t wait to get back to “Barbara, the volunteers and our wonderful guests!” Welcome back Hans!
