13. Padony Illam, Trichy (Trichy Diocese) - 2012

Mrs. Christine Gomez Patrick, retired Professor from Holy Cross, Trichy, was kind enough to donate her house at Thillainagar, for our use as a Centre of worship and healing. After the renovation work the house was occupied by our friars from June 2012.

Presently Br. Soosai Arul is the Guardian. Together with him, live Br. John Antony, Psychologist and Br. John Britto the Musician.  It serves as the Counselling Centre for all the people in and around Trichy.

Ouagadougou is situated in the Capital City. It was established a parish on 10th December 2000 in the presence of Br. John Corriveau, the General Minister. The first Capuchin Parish Prist was father A. John Britto. The team of friars caters to the needs of seven substations in the Archdiocese of Ouagadougou. The friars resided in a rented house as the Church and the friary were yet to be built. The National language here is ‘Moore’. The first capuchin friary in Burkina Faso was inagurated on Saturday 18th June 2005. His Grace Rt. Rev. Jean-Marie Untaani Compaore, the Arch Bishop of Ouagadougou, presided over the concelebrated thanksgiving mass at the parish church of St. Francis of Assisi parish. It was followed by the blessing of the newly constructed “St. Pio Friary” by Very Rev. Bro. Andre Menard, the Provincial Minister of the province of France.
