At present 4 of the priests from Goa are in the UAE, catering to the spiritual needs of those in the Arabian desert. They are specially liked by the Goan expatriates in that region, and they invite the Goan friars there to conduct certain novenas too.
For the past few years, some of our missionary brothers are in Mexico assisisting
In the coming year we would move to a couple more places in the state and even possibly abroad.
Whenever necessary, the priests go to some Western countries for a few months to help out in parishes where there is a tremendous shortage of priests, and also for other spiritual exercises.
We go wherever we are called, and true to the charism and the desire of tour Holy Father St. Francis, we go wherever we are required. As a result we are lovingly called as people’s friars or the people’s fathers.
