CONFRATERNITY OF MOTHER FRANCISCA
DEL ESPIRITU SANTO DE FUENTES
(COMFES )

 

I. RATIONALE


Mother Francisca, foundress of the Beaterio de Santa Catalina de Sena, now known as the Congregation of Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena, was born in Manila in 1647. Widowed and childless after a brief marriage, she dedicated herself to the service of the young, the sick and the poor. On August 24, 1711, she died bringing to a happy end a life of deep fidelity to God. Her spirit continues to live through the members of the Congregation she founded who commit themselves to a life of service to God, to the Church and to all regardless of faith, race, culture, age and state of life.

To make the spirit of Mother Francisca known and alive in the ~ contemporary time, the Confraternity of Mother Francisca del II Espiritu Santo (COMFES) is organized in every school/community of the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena.
