About Us

Welcome To Mary Queen of Peace Province

Mary Queen of Peace Capuchin Province South Tamilnadu, India welcomes you! We the Capuchins trace our heritage back 800 years to the little poor man of Assisi, called St. Francis who searched for the real foot prints of Jesus Christ and therefore the Holy Mother Church named him ‘The Second Christ’. In the holy gospels he found the real way to Jesus Christ and chosen the very gospel as his rule of life. We live in fraternities and we are called 'Friars Minor' which mean lesser brothers. Thus universal brotherhood is the corner stone of our life. Looking at the poor and obedient crucified Christ we lead a life of poverty, obedience and chastity. By our prayer and social activities we make ourselves visible to the surroundings.

Mission and Vision


We, the lesser brothers of St. Francis, follow the crucified Christ by committing towards the integral development of the human person and the cosmos, and by identifying and participating with the poorest of the poor in their struggle for total liberation.

We commit ourselves:
  • To God’s will through passionate contemplation;
  • To human person through compassionate availability and Franciscan hospitality;
  • To work for a just and peaceful society in preferential option with the poorest of the poor;
  • To live in harmony with Mother Nature and to safeguard her.
