     "Volunteering at St Francis reminds me of perhaps the most basic principal of ministry -- Ministry begins in using your own experiences to make someone else’s life a bit better, even if your own experience was nothing more than confusion and self-doubt."

     Donate now to help our Volunteer Program secure its existence for next year. Your contributions are tax deductible and will secure our ability to welcome more young men and women to service and ministry among those who need us most.

 
CapCorpsAssisi4       The 2015-2016 Cap Corps Volunteers worked to make the Year of Mercy Pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi to end their year of service among the Capuchins a grand success.
       The idea was born after our powerful experience of seeing Pope Francis in DC during our Holy Father's visit to the United States. It grew with strength and fervor when Pope Francis announced this year to be an Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, blessed the Holy Doors at St. Peter's Basilica, and called the faithful to make a brief pilgrimage to the Holy Door.

       We received Pope Francis's invitation loud and clear!

Was Winter really that long ago?

In February, the Cap Corps Volunteers traveled from the posts in Washington, DC, and from Cleveland, OH, to meet in Salisbury, PA, where the friars have their Alverno Retreat House in the Allegheny Mountains. The retreats in the Fall and Winter are an important part of the program to build community and to share experiences in the years of serve.

Br. Al Carver, OFM Cap., a friar-deacon in preparation for his priesthood ordination, provided an opportunity for the volunteers to reflect on their experiences in ministry and the impact it's had on them.
