Charity

In Singapore, the Franciscan Friars have established a Registered Charity under the name of The Order of Friars Minor (Singapore) Ltd, or OFM(S) for short.

OFM(S) is able to receive gifts in the form of cash donations, property, legacies and other gifts, for the purpose of carrying out its primary objectives, which are

  • To foster and promote the Franciscan way of life, especially its principles of universal love, almsgiving, peace, mutual respect, mercy and understanding
  • To provide education and formation in the Franciscan way of life, including the training of friars to serve in Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei and beyond
  • To provide spiritual, physical and charitable relief to the poor, sickly, needy, aged and infirm as part of the Catholic Church

 

Board of Directors
Friar John Wong OFM – Chairman
Friar Clifford Augustine
Friar Derrick Yap OFM

Together with in-house staff, a Finance Committee and some lay professional advisors, we strive to support the ministry and outreach of the Franciscan Friars throughout the Bishops’ Conference of Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei and beyond.
