Society of Saint Francis (SSF), Province of the Divine Compassion

Introduction to the community

The Province of the Divine Compassion came into being in 2011. It was established out of the previous Province of Australia and New Zealand. We are the most diverse SSF Province in culture, language and mission in the SSF World. We take in Sri Lanka, Korea and North Asia, Australia and New Zealand. There is also interest in our life and mission in India. Our Brothers develop their skills, abilities and education to reach people and communities with Christ’s peace and compassion, especially those who live in poverty and on the margins.
