The Capuchins of Central Canada also known as Mary, Mother of the Good Shepherd Province is unique among other Capuchin Provinces worldwide in that we are a very multi-cultural province. Bro. Akram Esho comes to us via Syria and Mr. Sunil D’Costa comes by way of India.
While we ask for your prayerful support of these new men, we also need your financial assistance as well. As Franciscans we are asked to make our needs known and to depend upon providence (God and YOU!).
Our needs are great; we are blessed to have these men to form and to educate into our way of life, so that they will be well rooted in the Church’s history and teachings and prepared for professional ministry. This is an expensive endeavor which costs $120,000 per person! Please be as generous as you can, ask your friends and family to join you in your generous support of the Capuchin Franciscans of Central Canada by mailing in a donation, or making an online donation (see page previous page).
Tax Receipts Canada only) from the Capuchins are issued annually.
Please pray for all of our men in the various phases of Capuchin formation as they prepare themselves for a lifetime of service in the Church and among the people of God.
While many say the Church is struggling with declining vocations to religious life, we remain grateful that God continues to send young men who seek our Capuchin way of life. Currently we have three friars and one layman in our Formation Programs, with the promise of yet more men who are inquiring.
With your generous financial help, one of these men may become a saint...perhaps even another Blessed Solanus Casey?
(The Beatification of Ven. Solanus Casey is scheduled for Saturday, 18 Nov., 2017 in Detroit, Michigan USA)
