Patrons of the Philippine Custody


"Empowered by the Holy Spirit, under the guidance of Mary Immaculate and Blessed Bonaventure of Potenza, we, the Conventual Franciscans (OFMConv.) in the Philippines, envision ourselves as giving witness to fraternal life; fostering communion and renewal in the local Church, in the families, specially in the poor and marginalized; advocating justice, peace, solidarity with and care of creation.

Therefore, we strive to follow Christ more closely in the spirit and example of St. Francis of Assisi in the Conventual Franciscan tradition according to the signs of the times and Filipino culture by living the Gospel in common and promoting holistic healing using the available means and resources."
