Happy Easter from the Capuchin Franciscans - Alleluia!

Peace of the Risen Christ be with you all !!

We have just celebrated three most wonderful days. We have experienced the Lord's Supper and the institution of the Eucharist, the central act of our faith. We have walked the way of the Cross with Jesus to Calvary and this week we journey with the Resurrected Jesus, the Light of the World; the light in which no darkness exists.

This is a time of great Grace and renewal when we bask in the Glory of His Resurrection.  A time of great celebration and up-building for us all.  During these eight days of Eastertide we rejoice in Jesus' victory over death.

One important ceremony for the Capuchins is the Veneration of the Cross which takes place every year at the Capuchin Day Centre for the Homeless on Good Friday.  A short video can be found below.


The Capuchin Franciscans in Ireland wish you all the Joy, Peace and Love that the Risen Lord has to offer us.  May we all recognise Him in all we do and in everybody we meet.

Alleluia, alleluia!!
