Franciscan in its essence.

Mary - like in its approach.

» Seek strength from the Eucharist

» And offer ourselves in challenging services


Mother's Day


Mother is a cherished treasure for one and all
Mother is a person whose place none can take
If ‘M’ is removed from mother one becomes only other
When to other ‘M’ is added, becomes a Mother.
Mother is the live head of the family
Where hearts and minds bond in unison
Feel at home and become one unit – the family.
All have a role to play but Mother roles them all into one
So uniquely that none can vie with her.
Her presence is Joy / her absence a real ….
So true it is.  

Mary is our heavenly Mother
Maman Our founding Mother
   Francoise Our Institute’s present Mother  
   Each of us is blessed to have a Mother

In the spirit of mercy we become Mother to others.
Mother’s day is our day. Have a good day!
