The Capuchin Franciscans in New Zealand follow St. Francis of Assisi as brothers,

living the Gospel in prayer, fraternity and ministry.

Through contemplative prayer, we witness to Jesus Christ, Mary, the Blessed Mother, and the Church as a joyful presence of hope and salvation to all—especially those most in need. Our worldwide brotherhood spans 101 countries, with 11,000 religious living in more than 1,800 communities. Our work includes ministries in parishes, schools, hospital and prison chaplaincies, retreat houses and historic missions.

If you’re contemplating and feel that you have a vocation, we’d like to invite you to come and to see our way of life. As we are just 8 members in New Zealand we need more and more young people of commitment and dedication to join us and bring good news of Chirst all over New Zealand. The good news is that we have already one professed KIWI brother with us and another aspirant.
