Get to know our brothers!
To be a Capuchin is to be open to the will of the superior. To go where nobody wants to go, to take the last seat at the table, to work with those, in whom we may see the reflection of Jesus, for whom he stands up – orphans, widows, homeless, poor. That is why we are present in Africa. We work in two countries – Central African Republic and Chad.
We made our first steps here in 1938. Until 1993 there were 304 brothers who preached the Good News on this territory. Thanks to their dedication and intensive pastoral work 9 brothers from Chad and 9 from CAR have made their vows by 1997. Today Capuchins of the vice-province are present in 13 communities: 5 in Chad (20 brothers altogether) and 8 in CAR (36 brothers). In those places we live in diverse, international communities running parishes, formation centers, disability center, community houses, seminaries – minor and major, music school, Radio Siriri, service for nuns and diversified offer for ‘street children’.

Medicines for Africa31 July 2015
Good news from Africa! 1500 kg of medicines finally reached our country. Brother Roland, whom you may see on the picture, collected the delivery assembled by ‘Medeor’ of Germany. May God reward you with His blessing and guidance and all our donors, whose generosity we praise! Donated medicines will be successively transported to Ngaoundaye. (more…)More

You are cordially invited you to join the elite companion of our regular contributors, who have declared a systematic help. Once I was asked: ‘What should I do to multiply my wealth?’, and I responded: ‘You need to help others, but not just once, but regularly. Just in a couple of days or months you will see how the value of your money will be multiplied!’
I invite you to help the custody of Chad and CAR – the poorest countries in the entire world. Your money will be in good hands – brothers who have been working their fingers to the bone so that local people have access to food, education, jobs and seeds of God’s words planted in their hearts, and the amazing change that they made in Africa is the best possible recommendation.
We are looking for the good people who will help us finance the purchase of the food, victuals necessary to maintain hygiene and deliver healthcare and education.
