This mission began on January 6, 2000. The new community of Singapore, under the name of "San Francisco Fernández de Capillas", was erected in a religious house exempt on January 22, 2001.


As there was no presence of the Order in this nation and the Province needed a place for the formation and studies of the brothers in formation who could not travel to another place, the Province opened the house of San Francisco de Capillas in Singapore, precisely to arrange of a place ours for the international trainers in the Asia-Pacific area.

Singapore is a good place to meet the needs of the Church in Asia, where there is a very dynamic group of secular Dominicans.
