Postulants meet the Poor Clares

Cappostulants2016 800       We received some shots of our postulants in from Kip Ledger, OFM Cap., and from Jim Mongovan, OFM Cap., the directors for this stage of Capuchin formation for our Province. The 7 postulants (candidates) are in their first year of Capuchin fraternity. They share their life, prayer and work at Padre Pio Friary in Philadelphia, PA, which has recently changed location to a new residence in the city.

        The postulants were recent visitors to the Langhorne Poor Clare community near Philadelphia. It gave us a chance for these group shots with Br. Jim (left) and together with the Poor Clares below.

       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.

Novitiate: A Day in the Life

       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.
