This step in their lives follow their years of formation in our Capuchin Franciscan way of life, and years of study in theology and ministry in Washington, DC. Ms. Jess Wabler, a friend of Br. Al, served as cantor, along with friar Bob Herrick, OFM Cap., who coordinates the music ministry all of our Provincial liturgies.

Nellie was part of Cap Corps in 2010-2011, and went on for graduate work after her year of service to serve as a physician.
