Olten Capuchin Market of Advent Season

The Capuchin Friars of Swiss Province have been conducting this advent Market for number of years. This market is the initiative of the capuchin friars and lay collaborators. They have been doing this for number of years. the proceeds of this market goes to the Missions in Africa and other Asian countries. The Mission office of the Province works very hard for the organization of this market. It is organized in the garden of the friary. I was told that thousand and thousands visit this market during the week. 

 These are small shops put up by the volunteers for the Market......May the Lord bless the people and the friars...May their intentions be blessed and may have generous people to visit this market....

 The friars cook food and they are invited in the refectory....they pay very minimum for eating.....

 Next time if you happen to be in Swiss around the first week of Advent do visit this market.....if you have friends around Olten, ask them to visit these days.....it began today....this is for a good cause...
