About Us

The Order of Friars Minor Capuchin - Custody of Malaysia-Singapore

The Order of Friars Minor Capuchin (Latin: Ordo Fratrum Minorum Capuccinorum; postnominal abbr. O.F.M.Cap.) is an order of friars within the Catholic Church.

The Capuchins, accordingly, are sons of St. Francis. We lead Christian life according to the simplicity of the gospel, lead others back to the Christian spirit and inspire all with greater love of God.

As the Custody of Malaysia-Singapore, we are Capuchins ministering to West Malaysia, East Malaysia and Singapore.

SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI (Admonitions- no. 27)

“Where there is charity and wisdom there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility there is neither anger nor worry.”

Our Spirituality

What sets us apart from the rest of the world? A friar, lives the Gospel as simple as straightforward as possible with prayer and contemplation. In our Capuchin Fraternity, we live and depend on each other, in service to others.

Hearing the Call
