Hospitality is a path of discipleship in the following Jesus, merciful, pure of heart, builder of peace.


FASFHIC (Secular Franciscan Hospitaller Family of the Immaculate Conception) is an association of faithful individuals who propose to live the Charism of the Congregation of the Franciscan Sisters Hospitallers of the Immaculate Conception, according to the Spirituality lived and transmitted by its Founders: Father Raimundo dos Anjos Beirão and Mother Maria Clara do Menino Jesus. 

FASFHIC is a space where members while maintaining their lay status, deepen their Christian vocation and the pursuit of holiness, all while actively living and bearing witness to the Charism of Hospitality.

Persons who wish to live their Christian vocation can join FASFHIC, where they adopt Hospitality as a life project and express it through the concrete acts of the Works of Mercy.

Called to be a Leaven of Hospitality, in the Church and the world, the members of FASFHIC propose to do good where there is good to be done, being light and warmth, and extending a welcoming and hospitable hand to all, particularly those in greater need. Their mission is to foster a deep connection with God and nurture fraternity with their fellow human beings.
