24 young men received into the Capuchin Novitiate in the United States
This week, in the United States, 18 young men completed their year long Novitiate in California and have now professed temporary vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience. But no rest for the Novitiate staff as 24 men arrived and were invested into the Novitiate (pictured above)
The novitiate, hosted by Western American Province, caters for 6 US provinces as well as Canada, Australia, Great Britain and Ireland. Last Saturday, Br Roger Soares was professed for the British Province.
And as well as all this, 5 young men were accepted into Postulancy in the Western American Province, the first year of Capuchin Life!!
We wish them all well and assure them of our prayers. This is a great source of joy for us all and we pray that the Lord will continue to inspire young men to hear his call to serve the poor as a Capuchin Friar.
