Capuchin Franciscan Friars
Capuchin Friars live in fraternity,
pray as individuals and in community, share meals and time
together, helping each other to grow, just like in a family. Our
communities, called friaries, are joyful and hospitable places.
The Order of Capuchin Friars is an evangelical brotherhood. Jesus of Nazareth is our
guide for a simple and humble life among the people. The life of
Christ, Holy Scriptures, St. Francis and his writings give us
The friars are sent by Jesus to preach, first by the example of our
lives, then in many practical ways: prayer and contemplation,
pastoral work, social services, care ministries, mission
activities, publications and communication, etc.
