We see our ministry as being a privileged opportunity to participate in the mission of Jesus Christ
Capuchin Franciscans joyfully witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ through their way of being in the world. We see our ministry as being a privileged opportunity to participate in the mission of Jesus Christ, manifesting the Kingdom of God here on earth through our healing and empowering work among all people. We minister in all types of settings, to diverse groups of people, and in all kinds of ministerial opportunities, always with the desire to offer what we have been blessed with for the good of others and for the glory of God.
LEARNING FROM THE POOR
Capuchin Franciscans address the needs of the poor in many ways. For example, we provide direct services to the hungry and homeless; we advocate for these persons by helping them to access the resources they need; and we are involved in community organizing to help ensure that our society never forgets the needs of the poor and the vulnerable. Another ministry some of our friars are involved is in helping people to deal with their addictions through drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs.
