San Pio de Pietrelcina Friary, Cd. Benito Juarez, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Named after our beloved Capuchin brother, Padre Pio, this house was built by the friars to house the ministry of formation for the many vocations arising in northern Mexico. The friars here study at local schools and also help in various churches. St. Pio Friary also hosts groups for days of prayer and reflection.
St. Francis always desired to preach the gospel in other lands. Today we as friars live and work not only in California, but in the mountains of Northern Mexico, helping with evangelization and building up the local church. There are also houses of formation in Mexico, helping form young men to become Capuchins and continue the work of the gospel.
