Welcome to the web site of Capuchins of St. Francis Assisi province Kerala, India.
We the Capuchins trace our heritage back 800 years to the little poor man of Assisi, called St. Francis who searched for the real foot prints of Jesus Christ and therefore the Holy Mother Church named him ‘The Second Christ’. In the holy gospels he found the real way to Jesus Christ and chosen the very gospel as his rule of life.
We live in fraternities and we are called friars minor which mean lesser brothers. Thus universal brotherhood is the corner stone of our life. Looking at the poor and obedient crucified Christ we lead a life of poverty, obedience and chastity. By our prayer and social activities we make ourselves visible to the surroundings.

Prayer is a way of life, a way to move through life with peace in our he arts. Prayer is a tool which we use to build our awareness of God within and to bring ourselves closer to God. And it is this awareness of God's presence that keeps us poised and centered in times of challenge. Here we are to support you with our prayers. Joining hands before the Lord let us be one in prayer.More Details

The Particular Mass celebrated for successive 30 days consecutively, without break, for the repose of the souls. It was initiated by Pope Gregory and hence the name. It attaches with it an indulgence. It is believed that the souls are sent to heaven, through the graces received from this Mass.
The Mass celebrated in almost all the monasteries of the Franciscan Congregation, amounting to lakhs or crores. The reception of the Eucharist in each Mass is offered for those who are members in the S.M.A. (Seraphic Mass Association). It also merits the members from the virtuous deeds of the Capuchin Religious, world-wide. It also entails to the members, the Apostolic Papal Blessing and a complete Indulgence, especially during death. The contributions or donations offered for the S.M.A., are enabled for the missionary purposes of the innumerable capuchin missionaries around the world, those missionaries who are serving in many orphanages, leprosariums, hospitals, dispensaries etc… This is a Mass, which is equally fruitful for both the dead as well as the living. The membership could be taken more than once.
