Fr. Remo DiSalvatore, OFM. Cap.
The Capuchin Development Office was created in the 1970s primarily to support the missionary efforts in Zambia. Over time, the role of the development Office has grown in support of the Friars’ efforts to establish ministries that meet the ever-changing needs of the less fortunate.
The Development office, located in Union City, NJ, coordinates all fund raising activities that assist the Friars in serving God's people.
Inspired by the life of St. Francis of Assisi, we the Capuchin Franciscan Friars Province of the Sacred Stigmata of St. Francis joyfully observe a life of simplicity, guided by contemplative prayer and brotherhood, that we may better embrace the Gospel and minister to others, preferentially to the poor and marginalized.
