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





 St. Joseph was not just a man but a "JUST MAN."

 Patron of the Universal Church is he, who lived in the shadow of Nazareth.

A skilled craftsman, hard worker, bread winner and head of the family.

A man without  exceptions  yet one surpassing others in righteousness and justice!

To the JUST MAN we pray for all the men of our time and day

   -men to be partners and not the opposite party

   -men to be guardians of higher values and not breakers of rule of life

   -men to be fathers of family unit and stronghold of society at large

   -men to be custodians of the other gender, loving, respecting and upholding

    Able to take pride in their blossoming

   -Men not to humiliate but wrap women as prized possessions and thank God.

Let our men not be just men but “JUST MEN” like St. Joseph, saint of the day.
