MY COMMITMENT TO THE FRANCISCAN SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMME

All Correspondence to be addressed to: THE PROVINCIAL BURSAR, St. Anthony’s Friary, 85 Hosur Road, Bangalore-560 095.

The Franciscan Province of St. Thomas the Apostle, India has more than 100 young men aspiring to become Franciscan friars. They are in various stages of Seminary formation like the Juniorate, Postulancy, Novitiate, Philosophate, Regency, Theologate, Pastoral formation etc. We depend on the generosity and goodness of our benefactors for funds to look after the education and formation of our students. We daily pray for our benefactors who support us. We would be grateful to you for your financial support in this mission of ours. If you desire to support us, kindly send your donations to:
