Once a month the friar team of the Capuchin Formation Program (CFP) of Borromeo Seminary in Wicklife, OH, (Frs. Lester Knoll, OFM Cap. and Mick Joyce, OFM Cap.) enlists a friar who is asked to give a formation evening on a designated Capuchin Franciscan topic. In the photo above, our brothers Lester (l) and Mick (r) are seated. Standing (from left) are Thomas Lydic, Evan Jamison, Luis Munguia, guest Br. Manuel Avíles, OFM Cap. , Patrick Cordero, Samuel Martinez and Joshua Soldat. The CFP hosted our brother Manuel the weekend of January 23rd.

Our Support office has begun their Annual Seminarian Appeal. Like many of you, we too incur the rising costs of education and study for our friars in Formation.
