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.
Friars from around the province will be gathering at St. Lawrence Friary in Beacon, New York on the evening of October 15th for their Provincial Chapter (Province meeting). They will gather for Mass, prayer, fraternal time, meetings and meals from Sunday evening through Friday. At this time we will have the election of the new Provincial Minister and his council. The faciliator for the week will be Fr. John Pavlic, a Capuchin from St. Augustine Province. Please pray for the friars during this most important week in the life of our province.
