Case Statement

Communal life defines the Capuchins and is key for living as equals and offering mutual support. Strengthened through communal life and prayer, friars minister to people on the margins and build up sister-brotherhood, helping God’s children in need. The monastery project supports the Capuchin charism and opens new opportunities for the friars to share experience, wisdom and prayer across generations. Postulants will benefit from the knowledge and service of older friars and bring assurance that the Capuchin call to be the hands and feet of Christ remains strong.
