Called to live the Gospel

Vocations Awareness Week 2014: Capuchins
The Capuchins’ primary ministry is to live the Gospel as brothers.

Catholic Outlook August 2014 Vocations Awareness Week

The Capuchin Franciscan Friars are one of the largest men’s religious orders in the Church, with more than 10,000 friars in over 100 countries.

Inspired by St Francis of Assisi, we strive to live the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ as a community of priests and brothers committed to a life of prayer, fraternity and ministry in simplicity, humility and joy!

We profess vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, conforming ourselves as closely as possible to Christ who was poor, chaste and always obedient to His Father in heaven.

The Capuchins are a reform of the Franciscans, seeking to return to a simpler lifestyle, a life of prayer, living in small communities, and preaching the Good News.

Our Franciscan charism of poverty and “minority” inspires us to seek to be lesser in our relationships with others to help build and foster communion, brotherhood and peace.
