Who we are

The Capuchin Franciscans are a unique community of brothers (some of whom are priests) who live and pray together, inspired by St. Francis of Assisi. Following his guiding principles of Fraternity, Minority, Contemplation, Ministry, and Justice, Peace & Ecology, we strive to live out the Gospel of Christ following the teachings and example of St. Francis.

Francis himself said, “I have done what is mine to do; may Christ show you what is yours.” Our Mission Statement and Guiding Principles help us live our Capuchin Franciscan life in Ireland in the 21st century.

The below video, produced by the Capuchin Province of Mid-America, is a slide show presentation of images set to music with quotes from both the Rule of St. Francis and the Constitutions of the Capuchin Friars Minor. It is meant to serve as an introduction to our way of life.
