A nickname for the O.F.M. Cap or The Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. The youngest branch of the Franciscan Family founded in 1520. Pretty much the most awesome religious order you can belong to. Friars can be priests or brothers but both have equal standing. Highly involved with ministries such as caring for the homeless, elderly, sick, poor, and spiritually lost. The modern sons of St. Francis of Assisi.
Take vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience.
