The Holy Land Franciscans of Singapore

Built in 1957 as a Sociological Centre, St Anthony’s is the main friary of the Custody in Malaysia-Singapore-Brunei. Currently, the friary houses the Custody administration, as well as a formation community. At all these levels, the friars remain inspired by St Francis of Assisi, and strive to live out the call to fraternity and Gospel witness, in work, study, prayer and hospitality.

The community fosters individual and communal lives of prayer and devotion, developing the experience of prayer, contemplation and community. Through this fraternity, the Order invests in the formation, education and support of our Friars towards proclaiming the Gospel.
