St. Francis said, “The Lord gave me brothers.” Discerning a Capuchin Franciscan vocation begins with prayer and personal reflection. As friars, we seek to help others discern their vocation, and see if they have a call to follow Jesus as a Capuchin Franciscan.
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.

The July 4th, Independance Day celebration in Solvang was the best ever. The crowds were greater than in the past and the friars and novices did an outstanding job of reaching out and greeting the people. Hundreds of American flags were handed out. God Bless America!
