Celebration of 75 years in Mexico

Last Wednesday, January 19, the Provincial Custody of Mexico and Texas of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin celebrated 75 years of continuous presence in Mexico. After nine days of making a historical and geographical tour of our current presences, we were able to reach the culmination of these days of virtual meeting, in which we were able to meet as brothers through social networks.

Christmas Greetings

Dear Brothers, greetings to you!

Lately, there’ve been many occasions in which I find myself in front of a camera in order to reach out and be present to everyone. We met with the friars of America, with the friars from India, with the friars of Europe, with the Italian friars. In short, there were many occasions due to the pandemic that have forced us to stay put and reach out to each other only through these means. Although this is a more traditional occasion, it is always very important to be able to reach out and communicate with one another, and I now desire to wish everyone well for this approaching Christmas.

75 years of presence in Mexico

This year we are overjoyed to celebrate together 75 years of uninterrupted presence in Mexico. We remember that year of 1947 when we began this presence of which we are a part today. We do not forget that before other Capuchins set foot on Mexican soil.
