VOCATION

“Why after you?” quizzed the first companions and has been echoed ever since. What is his enduring attraction?

Called to live the Gospel in the Capuchin way, by following St Francis, who is himself a door of faith, and meeting all as brothers and sisters, we affirm that our fraternities will be places of prayer, hospitality and outreach to all, so as to make present the Kingdom of God.

Are you looking to understand God’s will in your life and what God is calling you to? Are you looking for fulfillment? Are you looking for a life of brotherhood, prayer and service to the poor? If you are asking yourself these questions, maybe God is calling you to consider the Capuchin Franciscan way of life.
