As Capuchin Friars we strive to be Disciples of Jesus Christ by following in the footsteps of our founder, St Francis
'Praised be you, my Lord,
through our Sister, Mother Earth,
who sustains us and directs us
bringing forth all kinds of fruits
and coloured flowers and herbs.'
'The Lord has shown me what was mine to do, now may the Lord show you what is yours.' St Francis of Assisi
We are called to be men of prayer and contemplation active in the World.
We are called to follow St Francis as 'Brothers of the People'.
We are the Irish Capuchin Franciscan Friars and we have been ministering in Ireland since 1615. Today we are widely known for our work through our Friaries, in hospitals, hospices, parishes and of course through the incredible work of all involved in the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People.
