The transitional Diaconate Ordinations of Capuchin friars James Watson, OFM Cap., and Jonathan Ulrich, OFM Cap., took place on Saturday, September 3, at St. Augustine Church in Pittsburgh, PA.
You can view all of Matt's photos online from the event. Congratulations go out to Brs. James and Jonathan as they begin their diaconate internships.
James is assigned to Our Lady of the Mountains Parish and Friary in Cumberland, MD, for his diaconate ministry, while Jonathan will be living and serving at Our Lady of the Angels Parish and Friary in Pittsburgh, PA.
The wait is over. Meet the Novices in this first edition of the 2016-17 Caperone . It's the monthly newsletter from the NAPCC (North American/Pacific Capuchin Conference) in Santa Ynez, CA.
Our own new brother Edgar Pereira seems to be well, and the new editors, Vince Carrasco (St. Conrad Province) and Joe Babcock (St. Joseph Province) obviously know a little about desktop publishing: the issue is chock-full of photos.
On Saturday, August 20, five Capuchin brothers made their perpetual vows to live "in obedience, without anything of my own and in chastity." The festive Mass was celebrated at St. Augustine Church in Pittsburgh, PA.
The five friars making their 'solemn' profession were (front) Akolla Etuge, OFM Cap., Reynaldo Frías-Santana, OFM Cap., (back) Tage Danielson, OFM Cap. , Carlos García-Cruz, OFM Cap., and Andrew McCarty, OFM Cap.
In the midst of a busy and anxious world, young men are still answering the counter-cultural call to the Catholic Religious Life of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience. The "Novitiate" is the second year of formation as a Capuchin Franciscan friar, and its primary task is discernment & prayer through contemplation.

It was another great turnout for an Alverno Discernment Weekend in August. Our brothers Rafa Anguiano, OFM Cap., and Tom Betz, OFM Cap., were ably assisted by Brs. Alex Hostoffer, OFM Cap., Andrew Corriente, OFM Cap., and Brian Wofford, OFM Cap., who arrived in Salisbury, PA, and our Alverno Retreat house outside of town, to lead 16 young men discerning a call to the Religious Life as a Capuchin Friar.
