The Capuchin Friars ministering in Ukraine
Since our very foundation in 1525, the Capuchin Friars have been called to serve the people of God in some of the most difficult and challenging situations including times of plague, famine and war. Today is no different. Our brothers ministering in Ukraine are sheltering the displaced who have come to them for help. Their daily life has gone underground into a basement where they are caring for those in need. This short video shows a little of their life before war arrived on their peaceful country. St Francis of Assisi, Patron of Peace – Hear our prayers for peace in Ukraine and in the World.
