Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find the homilies of some interest, and will be happy to recommend them to your family and friends.

From a very young age I wanted to be a priest. When I was a young boy in Delhi serving Mass I met a Capuchin priest I admired and so I made up my mind it was to be a Capuchin. One of my ambitions in life is for at least two young men to admire the life I lead and so inspire them to follow in my footsteps. If you feel called to be a Capuchin and you think I can help you, please contact me or write to me.

Should you want to support my work for the starving in the world, I would be grateful for any donations, no matter how small. Please send these by cheque to Father Francis Maple, at The Franciscan Friary, Pantasaph, Holywell, Flintshire, CH8 8PE.
