The Capuchin Franciscan Friars Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis are a Roman Catholic religious order of priests and brothers who are inspired by the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi. In the spirit of St. Francis, we live a Gospel brotherhood embracing the message of Christ, living simply and committed to serving the poor. By working and praying together, we encourage each other to fully live the Gospel in the spirit and example of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Padre Pio, Father Solanus Casey and many other holy Friars, both past and present.
