To the praise and glory of God the Almighty, the General Chapter has elected a new General Minister in the person of Friar Roberto Genuin OFMCap. We pray that God would bless him with the strength, wisdom and charisma needed to serve his brothers according to the mind of our Seraphic Father St. Francis.
The brothers who just took their first profession of vows after completing their one-year novitiate experience. The event took place on 11th August, 2018 at St.Mary of the Angels, Okokhuo, Edo state.
The newly professed brothers and cross-section of those who attended the ceremony.
Do you feel deeply drawn to a life of intimacy with God? Would you love to imitate Jesus in his life of complete self-emptying (humility and poverty)? Would you love to live like him in the life of total dedication to the will of God? Then join us!
Francis of Assisi assured his brothers that they will never lack, provided they live the life faithfully: "People will surely provide for your needs." Down the centuries, the Franciscan Order has survived on the charity of people.
Being a mendicant Order, we rely on divine providence for sustenance, that means, we beg for food and financial support from the faithful. We need your help and as the Lord said: "He who gives a prophet a cup of water because he is a prophet will have the prophet's reward."
We also need your help to promote our apostolate which are largely non-profit oriented. As you help us in any way, no matter how little, to carry on with our life of witnessing to the Gospel, we assure you of our prayers and implore God's blessings on you.
