Want to Help us?

You can support us in our mission and ministries in Tamil Nadu...

You can be part of our family in two ways. Either you could offer your sons to the order to this Capuchin way of life or you could be our benefactor to support us from outside. In any case, you are sure to be blessed by the Lord for your generosity. Perhaps, you might be willing to offer your child for our order, but that may not be possible due to various reasons. That need not disappoint you. You could adopt one of our student brothers as your spiritual son, who would support you with his prayers, who would take part in your family events and be a spiritual strength to you. May the Lord reward you abundantly for your kindness and concern for our mission!
