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.
