The Capuchin Franciscans follow St. Francis of Assisi as brothers, living the Gospel in prayer, fraternity and ministry.

Through contemplative prayer, we witness to Jesus Christ, Mary, the Blessed Mother, and the Church as a joyful presence of hope and salvation to all—especially those most in need. Our worldwide brotherhood spans 101 countries, with 11,000 religious living in more than 1,800 communities. Our work includes ministries in parishes, schools, hospital and prison chaplaincies, retreat houses and historic missions.

If you’re contemplating a vocation, we’d like to invite you to learn what it really means to be a Capuchin brother or priest.


Attend one of our 
Come and See
Discernment Weekends


Come and experience contemplative prayer with Capuchin brothers and priests, reflect on the life of
St. Francis, and witness the sharing of vocation stories.

Schedule a one-on-one meeting
with our Vocation Director

Experience first hand our urban ministries
at St. Lawrence of Brindisi Parish in
Watts and St. Francis High School in
