Cap Corps

Cap Corps, more formally known as Capuchin Franciscan Volunteer Corps, offers men and women the opportunity to work in direct service with the poor while living a simple lifestyle in community with other volunteers. The spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi is central to this experience of community and service.

Cap Corps volunteers commit to living in intentional community with one another in the Franciscan spirit of mutuality and simplicity. Volunteers energize and support one another in their call to live the Gospel by sharing the joys and sorrows of their daily life experiences.
