Taking the Gospel to parishes in our Capuchin Province of St. Augustine , four friar students are living out of back-packs and a van for the summer. Reports have it that they are making quite the impact on the young and old and in-beween’s. Seeing the enthusiasm and participation evoked by the missionaries, one parish friar remarked that “I am very impressed with these guys.”
Fr. Lester Knoll, OFM Cap., has authored this reflection on the story of Alverno, a place for solitude in our Capuchin Province of St. Augustine. Located in Salisbury, PA, it offers the environment to encounter the Lord in its silence, its beauty and its natural surroundings.
