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






Our life must be a perpetual Alleluia.

Sursum Corda!

Even now let us fix our hearts on high, fix them in Jesus...

Let us have but one thought: the joy of heaven, and, aided

by the Holy Spirit, let us seek the means to secure

this happiness...

Do we know how to relish the joys of the Cross

as did Francis and his faithful children?

Let us surrender ourselves generously to the cross

of Jesus, and it will not be long before we taste

its delights. Even here below our works will be fruitful

and our prayers granted while we await

the joys of heaven. . BL. Mary of the passion
