Vocations Weekend. 4th - 6th of December, Kilkenny

What is a vocation? Who are the Capuchin Franciscans? What do they do? Why do they do it?
If you have asked questions like these, maybe God is inviting you to 'come and see' (John 1:39) what life is like as a Capuchin Franciscan Friar. 
This vocation experience is open to men aged between 21 and 40. Men of faith; who want to make a tangible difference in the world today. For more information contact Br Terence at or on 086 323 0638.

Three new Postulants received into the Order in Dublin.

GOOD NEWS!  Recently three new Postulants were received into our Postulancy Programme at our Friary in Raheny, Dublin. The Postulancy is a year of discernment during which the candidates take a deeper look at their vocation and try to answer the question: is God calling me to this way of life?  There is no commitment involved and the candidates are free to leave at any time. If you would like to participate in this programme beginning next September then contact me now and together we will prepare for your participation in next years residential discernment programme.

Discern your vocation with the Capuchin Franciscans.

God has a plan for you. Discernment is all about trying to figure out what his plan is. It’s an attempt to answer the crucial question: what is it God wants of me?

Our discernment process is a yearlong non-residential programme beginning next September and finishing in September 2016. No commitment involved and no obligation. Among other things it will include an opportunity to live for a period of time (determined by yourself) in one of our communities, so as to experience at first hand community life, prayer and ministry. Ministry will include work experience with the poor at the Capuchin Day Centre for the Homeless at Church Street, Dublin. Spiritual direction will also be available.

If interested all you need do is phone me, Br. Terence, at 086 3230638 or email me at tharr@eircom .net.
