"God bless you and yours!" Guild membership is one of the most important ways to support our work. The Guild began in 1960 as a movement of lay people devoted to Fr. Solanus. Later, Capuchins were appointed to direct the work. Today, the Guild depends on the prayers, encouragement, and support of people all around the world.
Membership is a share in the prayers and Masses of 21,000+ members in at least 23 countries. Each new member grows our family of devotees to the life and spirituality of Father Solanus. Benefits include a monthly Mass, one for our deceased members, and one for the living. Their intentions are remembered daily in prayer.
Members also receive a subscription to the Guild News, our quarterly newsletter, to stay updated about our progress and happenings. This is the only mail we send unless we have a special event or news that can’t wait for the next issue.
Whether or not a member, each person praying in confidence for the intercession of Fr. Solanus, sharing with loved ones, and reporting favors (answered prayers) increases our likelihood of finding the miracle needed for Beatification and, ultimately, Canonization and full Sainthood.
We welcome you to this Cause in whatever way you can participate. We sincerely appreciate your interest in helping us make Fr. Solanus known far and wide.
Yours in Christ,
Br. Richard Merling, OFM Cap.
Director of the Fr. Solanus Guild since 1979
