Capuchin ministry sites affected by COVID-19 outbreak Effective Friday, March 13, 2020 some Capuchin ministry sites will be closed in an effort to mitigate the outbreak of COVID-19. Latest information is available here.

Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, we tend to people’s basic needs, especially the need for food. We also strive to stimulate minds, nourish spirits, and address root causes of social injustice.
