As Capuchin Franciscans we follow St. Francis of Assisi as brothers and priests, living the Gospel in prayer, fraternity and ministry, witnessing simply to Jesus Christ and the Church as a joyful presence of hope and salvation to all, especially to those most in need.
The Capuchins bring to the Franciscan Family and the world a distinct expression of the Gospel. In and through our life of prayer, we strive to live out the Gospel practicing charity and embracing evangelical poverty as brothers to all.
What We Do
The friars of the Western America Province seek to serve Christ in a variety of ministries throughout California and Northern Mexico. Our ministries include work in parishes, schools, chaplaincies, retreat houses and the missions. In all these ministries, from San Francisco to Watts to Monterrey, Mexico,our goal is always the same - to be a joyful presence of hope and salvation to all, especially to those most in need. Wherever we are, we seek to find the power of Christ working in his people.
This new music ministry is something we believe will be a great gift to the province and all who we meet as friars.
