The first missionary religious congregation for women in the history of the Church and the world is the Institute of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary founded in 1877 by BL. Mary of the Passion, now in the 139th year of its course.

Franciscan in its essence.
Missionary in its services
Mary - like in its approach.

» Dedicated to universal mission

» Seek strength from the Eucharist

» And offer ourselves in challenging services


On 6th January 2016 on the 139th anniversary of the Institute a page is opened titled FMMINDIA with a specific intention of sharing so as to foster , to safeguard our story, culture and traditions from extinction.

My Dear Sisters,

The glad tiding offered to you is the launching of our page” fmmindia” in the face book for our five provinces to begin with. Invite each one of you with an email id to log in and to keep it going specially in sisterly sharing of our life: personal and community, activities, surprises, miracles, failures and losses. Special request is to post a photo of your present self so that it helps us to identify and relate warmly.

The seniors can narrate nostalgic events for example: In our days; in those days, gone are the days…etc. so that our younger generation gets to know our past heritage.

The lucky middle aged, the changes, their consequences and new openings!

The young “Israel” can suggest and create a world of your own!

Besides of course, any topic of interest, inspiration and exhilarating!!!
