"In 2008 the Capuchin Friars of Leichhardt saw a need for engaging those who receive food services on a deeper level. The friars at Leichhardt, including the 6 student friars in formation, decided to purchase a van that would be able to cater for handing out hot coffee and tea. Those who have received their food from various services are able to come to the “Friars Van” for a hot drink and a talk. One quiet man, after receiving coffee from the friars, said that “you friars are the only people I get to talk to in my whole week.”
This is a picture of our oldest son volunteering at the Friar's Van.
