In the Holy Rule he laid down for his friars, Saint Francis of Assisi wrote, “As strangers and pilgrims in this world, who serve God in poverty and humility, the brothers should beg alms with confidence. And there is no reason why they should be ashamed to go begging, because God made himself poor for us in this world.”

We Franciscan friars humbly knock on thedoor of your heart. We would deeply appreciate your financial assistance for any of the following donation drives:

  • Adopt-a-Seminarian – We have more than seventy (70) college seminarians at the Our Lady of the Angels Seminary in Bagbag, Novaliches, Quezon City. It costs around P50,000 per semester to house, nourish, and educate each seminarian. Many are indeed called, but few are chosen. Help us cultivate the vocation of these poor but deserving young men seeking to respond to God’s call.

  • Adopt-an-Aging-Friar – The wrinkles and body pains of our aging Franciscan friars bear witness to their many years of valiant mission work among the poor and marginalized. Help us care for our lolo friars as they bravely and prayerfully continue to carry the cross of Christ in their physical weakness and illness.

  • Adopt-a-Poor-Parish – Can you imagine a parish that encompasses two municipalities? The Franciscans administer such a parish in Nueva Viscaya. Can you imagine a parish that encompasses four municipalities? We have one in Isabela province. Help us share the Good News and the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus with our Filipino brothers and sisters in remote areas.

  • Adopt-a-Spirituality-Center – In this noisy and busy world, we need a place of peace and quiet, a place of prayer where we can re-connect with ourselves and with our loving God. Help us build this place of spiritual healing and refreshment. Help us develop the San Pedro Bautista Spirituality Center, a beachfront oasis of spiritual wellness in Botolan, Zambales.
