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.


We are pleased to announce that the San Lorenzo Novitiate Chapel will be reopened to the public beginning on Sunday, August 9, 2020.

Our Sunday 9:00 AM Mass will be held outdoors, observing guidelines to protect public health (hand sanitizing, social distancing, face coverings, limited singing, no common communion cup, etc.). Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing, stay hydrated, and bring their own chairs.

Our Monday thru Saturday 8:00 AM Mass will be held in the Chapel observing similar guidelines.

We will continue to pray for you each day, please pray for us!
