Fr. Sharan Crasta joins the Capuchin Community of Larino Friary, Italy
Fr. Sharan Vincent Crasta arrived in Rome on 10th January 2019 and was picked up by Fr. Bona Marcel at the Airport. Fr. Sharan spent that night at Collegio San Lorenzo in the good company of our Capuchin student-brothers from the province. Next day Fr. J. B. Sequeira, the Guardian of the Larino friary, along with Fr. Luigi di Fiore, accompanied Fr. Sharan to Larino.

On 12th January, during the evening Mass, Fr. Sharan was officially welcomed with words and flowers by the OFS members and by the congregation. On 17th January, Fr. Maurizio Placentino, the Minister Provincial of Foggia, visited the community and extended a fraternal welcome to Fr. Sharan. Fr. Sharan is now called by his second name ‘Fra Vincenzo’, and he is the Vicar of the Larino community.

On 24th January Fr. J. B. took him, along with Fr. Denis Lobo, to the shrine of Padre Pio at San Giovanni Rotondo where Fr. Jossy Fernandes offered them a warm hospitality. Presently Fr. Sharan is fully engaged in learning the Italian language by attending a course and by constantly conversing with the people.
