Making the Commitment to Consecration in Boston

May 07, 2015


Friars from San Lorenzo and St. Francis Friaries at an evening discussion about Franciscan spirituality.

"For the first few years, these brothers live in San Lorenzo Friary while learning to balance Capuchin values of prayer, fraternity, study, and ministry. They study at local colleges, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry and at St. John's Seminary. All friars in post-novitiate have a public ministry in Boston. Some work at St. Francis House, which provides many services for the homeless of Boston, some minister prisons, while others provide assistance in college campus ministry and in local parishes. Each year, for a minimum of three years, brothers in post-novitiate make a simple profession of vows, renewing their commitment to poverty, chastity, and obedience."
