"Lord, Tell Me What To Do"
A person who is interested in becoming a Capuchin Franciscan remains in contact with the Vocation Director. The Director helps him discern his call through visits to our fraternities, conferences and “Come and See” Weekends. This period of discernment can be as long as needed.
Attend one of our Come and See Discernment Weekends
Come and experience contemplative prayer with Capuchin brothers and priests,
reflect on the life of St. Francis, and witness the sharing of vocation stories at our retreat house, San Lorenzo Prayer Center in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Vocation Director, Fr. Peter Banks OFM Cap.
Fr. Peter will arrange a one-on-one meeting to attend
Lord Jesus Christ, you called St. Francis of Assisi
to follow you in living the Gospel life.
You inspired others to follow him
by the power of his example.
We ask you to increase vocations to the Church,
to the Capuchin Order, especially on the West Coast,
and to all religious orders.
Inspire young men and women to devote their lives in your service.
This we earnestly petition
through our Seraphic Father,
St. Francis and Our Lady of Angels,
Patroness of the Capuchin Franciscans Western America Province.
