Lord God, in your loving kindness you sent your Son to be our Shepherd and guide. We thank you for these brothers who have accepted the call to minister to their brothers. Bless them. May your Holy Spirit strengthen their hearts and enlighten their minds as they take up their new responsibilities. When the cross of service to the brothers becomes heavy, help us to be a support for them as you lighten their burden and grant them Wisdom. Through their endeavors may we grow together in Faith, Hope and Love. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Journey Ahead

Our new council will face many challenges, but with your prayers and the grace of God, they will lead us towards greater faith, hope, and love. Their commitment to our community is a source of inspiration, and we look forward to the positive impact they will have on our province.

Leadership within the Capuchin Franciscan Friars is not just about guiding; it’s about serving with humility and dedication. The responsibilities our new councilors have undertaken are profound, and they need our prayers and support more than ever. Together, we can help lighten their load and support their mission.

We invite all members of our community to join us in continuous prayer for Br. Robert Sewe, Br. Victor Taglianetti, Br. Joseph Seraphin Dederick, Br. Robert Barbato, and Br. Lijoy Jose. May their hearts be filled with the Holy Spirit, and may their leadership guide us all closer to God’s love.
