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 143rd 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







 Following one's religion is a basic right.The murder of Shahbaz Bhaati,

 sole Christian minister in the cabinet is a shameful and unthinkable deed.  

 For the courage he manifested, we praise you Lord.

 Though very saddened we pray for courage and grace to witness to You, O Christ in our time.

 Bind us all, people of good will  together in love.

 Help us to rise against such unreasonable violence.

 May his courage, life and witness help us to be prepared

 for the upcoming persecutions under various  forms.

 May the united struggle of the Libyians be an eye opener.

 Bless every good effort with sucess.
