This week saw huge queues for food parcles outside our Friary in Kilkenny and over 3000 food parcels packed in the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People in Dublin ready for distribution.
Our response to the need of those on the margins of society is an intrinsic part of what it means to be a Capuchin. Since our foundation, Capuchins have sought to help those most in need through active collaboration. This work continues today.
Let us pray for all those in need this Christmas.
