San Fidelis Friary, Tres Ojitos, Chihuahua, Mexico
This house serves as the novitiate for the Capuchin Franciscans of Northern Mexico. Located in the country outside the city of Madera, the friars here cultivate a contemplative atmosphere. They also serve the needs of the many small communities scattered about in the area as well as serving as chaplains for the Capuchin Poor Clare Sisters in Madera.
St. Francis always desired to preach the gospel in other lands. Today we as friars live and work not only in California, but in the mountains of Northern Mexico, helping with evangelization and building up the local church. There are also houses of formation in Mexico, helping form young men to become Capuchins and continue the work of the gospel.
