In 2022, the first Pan-American meeting of the Capuchins took place in Brazil. In preparation for this grand meeting, several online sessions were held for the friars to discuss pertinent topics in our apostolic and missionary life.
Next year, 2024, Capuchins from all over the Americas will come together once again to hold the II Pan-American Meeting. With the intention of motivating the friars and proposing a reflection that is more in-depth in the face-to-face meeting, 3 virtual meetings will be held. In the first meeting we will talk about the “Implications of the path of synodality in the apostolic life of our Order”. To participate, simply access the link that will be made available 24 hours before the meeting on our website and in the official Friars of the Americas group on Facebook.
