With immense joy, we celebrate, with the act of Solemn Profession, the gift of life and vocation of our brothers Juan Pérez and Roberto García.
Under the slogan Let's continue brothers!, the Capuchin Younger Brothers of Mexico and Texas have celebrated the Second Extraordinary Chapter, the days from January 23 to 27 of the present.
Peace and good
As a Franciscan Order we are happy to be able to celebrate 300 years of two magnificent events in the life of Saint Francis. Events that show us the depth of his spirituality and that marked an important milestone in the history of the Church.
It is an opportunity for all of us to foster our ecological conversion by listening and responding together to the cry of creation. This time will take place throughout the Church from September 1 to October 4. A time that begins on the "World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation" and closes on the Day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology. This year's theme is "Listening to the Voice of Creation".
On the 28th of this month at 1:00 pm in the chapel of the fraternity of St. Anthony of Padua we celebrated the Eucharist to give thanks for the gift of life and vocation. In it, with a simple rite where the young men ask for the entrance to the postulancy and later they are given the Bible and the tau, the postulancy began for the six new brothers.
Twenty-five years ago, in 1997, the Capuchin friars arrived on August 11 in La Piedad, Mich. where the fraternity of St. Anthony of Padua was canonically erected as the Novitiate of the then Delegation. The decision to come to this place was a greater possibility of apostolate and formation. Besides being a place relatively close to the fraternity of Guadalajara.
