Meet Br. André

Andre2       2015 has been designated by our Holy Father as the "Year of Consecrated Life" in the Lord's service.  

       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.

       This year, they've asked our novice brother André Repucci, OFM Cap., to share with you his own personal vocation story and his thoughts about discerning the call to Religious Life in the Church.
