Capuchin Franciscans: Brothers in Mission

Peace be with you all!

I have attached a video of our life and work as missionaries. As Capuchin Friars we are called to be Mission whether we are at home or abroad. We have Irish Friars on mission in Zambia, South Africa, New Zealand, South Korea and California.

If you feel that the Lord is calling you to join our mission to Brotherhood and a Gospel life, contact our Vocations Director, Br Terence Harrington, on 086 3230638 or email

                                                         Hearing the Call...

Peace to you all!!
I have attached a video from our Province in Western America. A Province founded by Irish Capuchin Friars 100 years ago. In this video we hear of the vocations experiences of two of the young Friars

The Lord can call in unusual circumstances but if we are tuned in to listen then we will hear
