Boniface Hanley, O.F.M.

Brooklyn-born Rev. Boniface Hanley, O.F.M., (1924-2010) was ordained a Franciscan priest in 1950. During his sixty years as a priest he has served his order as an administrator, high school and college professor, and missionary on Bolivia’s vast Alto Plano, where he founded his Aymaran Indian flock—perhaps the world’s highest parish—a school and clinic at 13,400 feet. Illness sent him back to the United States, where he discharged a variety of pastoral duties until his semi-retirement. For seventeen years Hanley and fellow friar Salvator Finkand researched and wrote the biographies of saints and holy people published in the quarterly Anthonian magazine.
