Welcome to the North American Pacific Capuchin Conference novitiate.

San Lorenzo Seminary is where Capuchin friars from North America complete their initial year of formation as novices. Whether you are a friar, member of the local community, or have any interest in our work and charism, we encourage you to learn more on our "About Us" page.

A Note to Our Friends

Following the direction of and guidance of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the Health Officer of Santa Barbara County in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the San Lorenzo Novitiate Chapel is closed to the public until further notice. As conditions change in the coming months, we will reevaluate our readiness to reopen safely.

The Capuchin friars of San Lorenzo will continue to remember you, your families and all affected by the pandemic in our prayers. Please remember us in yours. Thank you.
