Can you brighten a child's life with a Christmas gift? Our House of Peace children will go without a present to open Christmas morning unless you assist. We distribute over 7,000 new Christmas presents to children 10 years of age and under.
The Capuchin friars live and work with those who are in need of help… the poor, the disenfranchised, the needy. Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi, we tend to people’s basic needs, especially the need for food. We also nourish spirits.
